Parent and Guardian Council had our final meeting of the school year on Tuesday. We agreed to fulfill the school’s request for $13,000 for Chromebooks. It is a challenging time and an exciting time, and this is a step toward having a school that is fully technology capable. We hope this makes the return to school more doable, and look forward to ways that teachers integrate them into their classrooms.
For me, it was a bittersweet meeting, being my last. I have been active on Parent Council for the past 6 years, and on the board for 4 of those years. We have tried to keep an open line of communication, to keep our records straight and open, and to push the mission of the Council a bit. We have tried to continue most of the favorite events, increase some fun activities, and to make service projects integral to the Council mission. Many thanks to Fozia, Kristina, and Natalia for their work on the board for the last two years. I hope we are leaving the Council in even better shape than we found it. I’m sure with Mike continuing as Treasurer, and the addition of Sandra, Shantay, and Merideth, and with your involvement next year, the Council will move forward with its task of supporting the wonderful Westfield community.
May you have a safe summer with fewer and fewer Zoom meetings, and may you find peace, hope, and progress in your community.
