    We Need your Input!Elkhorn School Statement of Needs

    Dear Elkhorn Parents, 

    We need your input to complete the annual School Statement of Needs.

    What is the School Statement of Needs:
    Every fall, all school councils give their superintendent a summary of their school/community’s priorities in the event the school will be having a change in principal. As your school council, we are asking all parents to give us feedback regarding what you think the priorities for our school are.

    What We Need From You (Elkhorn Parents):
    Please email your comments to chair@elkhornschoolcouncil.ca by Thursday November 22, 2018 so we can incorporate your thoughts into the School Statement of Needs.

    Yes! I would like to provide Feedback

    We will also be at the school on Wednesday November 21, 2018 between 4pm to 5pm if you would like to discuss anything in person.

    More information about the School Statement of Needs can be found on the TDSB website: http://www.torontopiac.com/uploads/3/4/8/1/34816230/piac_sson_parent_guild.pdf

    A copy of the School Statement of Needs form can be obtained here: http://www.torontopiac.com/uploads/3/4/8/1/34816230/sson_form.pdf
