Karen Just: ‘Tis the season… Deployment and Holidays
‘Tis the season, the holiday season… The season considered by many as "the most wonderful time of the year". However, for many military families that are facing the deployment of a loved one, the holidays can be quite challenging as it is a reminder to them of the absence of their Service member.

Are you as involved in your child’s education as you would like to be? See what new research shows about parent engagement in our schools.
Whether it is helping a child with homework, volunteering at a school event or simply working with teachers when an issue arises, parents are taking an active role in our schools. A recent survey shows that levels of parent involvement are increasing. But, there is always room for the school division to create new opportunities for parents and the community to become in engaged. We wanted to know how satisfied parents are with current opportunities and what barriers may be keeping them from being more involved. The school division recently worked with the local research firm Issues and Answers to survey parents about their involvement and communication needs. You can learn more about the survey and see the results here.
