Mississauga, ON | Grades JK - 8 | Shortlist
Parents are very much encouraged to participate, give feedback and participate in the school's event's, decisions, trips etc. My only comment would be that for parents like myself who don't participate in drop-off or pick-up, sometimes I would hope for better advance notice of large events.
Parent involvement is being welcomed more and more. There are parent ambassadors now, when you speak with them one on on you get a better feel of the community you are a part of. You get good parent support as well from other parents. With one of my kids, we have a parents whatsapp group that we use to communicate with each other and support each other as it is needed. This has let to the class being a very close knit one. We exchange homework help and questions, extend birthday invites, confirm school information we may not be sure of, i.e. when is casual day, when is pizza day etc. I feel the opportunities are there, it is for us the parents to step up.
