This year promises to be an exciting year of new adventures for our children, the staff of Battalion Park School and ourselves, the parents.
Research has shown that one of the strongest indicators of student success is parental involvement. I strongly encourage you to get involved and get to know other families at our school. It builds relationships, connects you with other parents, builds a sense of community and shows your child that you value their education. Whether you have 20 minutes or 2 hours, your contribution makes a difference and benefits everyone involved!
As I enter my third year as Battalion Park School Council Chairperson, I would like to say a sincere thank you to all the volunteers who help at our school. It is the power of parents working together that allows us to create the kind of school community we want for our children.
One of Council’s goals for this is year is: To work with students and staff to build a new and re-imagined sense of culture for the “New Battalion Park School”.
It is a unique opportunity and I look forward to working with all the families of Battalion Park to achieve this goal.
Chair, Battalion Park School Council
