SFSPE Group Final Meeting and Dissolution Last week the Southside Family of Schools Parent Education group met for our year end meeting. After several thoughtful and meaningful conversations we have come to the conclusion that the although the group met and exceeded many years of our focus on providing parent ed resources in our community we have had a steady decline in attendance over the last 4 years. Effective immediately we have collectively decided to dissolve this group. We feel that our community has many more resources available as options for Parent Ed that were not in place over 15 years ago. This decision did not come easily to us, however we feel as a group that it is time.
Going forward, we would like to recommend our SD43 DPAC as a source to provide Parent Education to our community of parents (http://dpac43.ca/parent-resources-el/) We have thanked our schools Administration teams for the support of this group as well as Susan Foster who originally created the Southside Family of Schools group. We wish all parents/ caregivers/ educators the best! We all have an enormous job with no manual to tell us how to do it. May we all keep learning, growing and laughing with one another! Sincerely, Southside Family of Schools (Rachelle - Riverside, Angie - Citadel, Geoffrey - Mary Hill, Jason - Hazel Trembath, Rich - Kilmer, Rosie - Castle Park, Rayne - Pitt River, Courtney - Pitt River)
