PAC Meeting and AGM Thursday Oct 15 at 5pm John McInnis Learning Centre 3400 Westwood Dr (typically runs 1.5 hours)
Please share with other parents especially those new to CIDES and alternate programs this fall. Due to Covid, please RSVP by email so we are adequately prepared to meet current health and safety guidelines at the meeting. Masks are optional at that time if physical distance can be maintained, daily health check is mandatory, distancing will be implemented. If response is larger than the space can accommodate there may be an update to the meeting format. Being involved in PAC is a great way to be involved in your child’s education, especially this year, as everything has shifted so much. If a family is new to CIDES this would be a great way to share ideas and connect on important issues.
We hope you can join us for our DPAC Monthly Meeting for October and our AGM where we elect members of our Executive.
