May Message from HSA President Andrew Burke-Hall

Message from the President

I want to thank every parent who stood up, wrote a letter, made a call or wrote an email.   You ensured that the voice of the McGregor parent community was heard!   Thanks to your efforts we were able to hold a meeting with the school administration, teachers, trustee and superintendent and had the opportunity to discuss and review the concerns that have come to light in the past few weeks.

I would also like to applaud both the teachers and the school administration on raising the level of their cooperation to find a solution where everyone was treated with respect and felt their voice was heard in the process.   As you can read elsewhere in the newsletter  – the process is not yet complete and will not be complete until next September but through everyone’s passionate calls and letters we were able to hold a meeting quickly and ensure that a resolution to our immediate concerns was found.

In happier news  I wanted to thank all of you who came out to our second Parent Conference, it was a great day with much learning and fun had by all.   We are now getting ready for the final McGregor fundraising event of the year.    BINGO!!!    We had such a great time last year that we just had to do it again.   So keep an eye out for the flyer when it comes home next week  and mark your calendar for May 23d.  We are going to have food, fun and prizes galore !

Looking forward to seeing everyone there – until then – I’ll see you on the playground

Andrew Burke-Hall
