School Orientation Workshop for Newcomer Parents

School Orientation Workshop for Newcomer Parents

There will be a presentation on Communication with schools & parent/teacher meetings and interviews on Monday, November 5th at the Yellowknife Public Library meeting room from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. The session will be in English but I will be able to answer questions in French at the end of the presentation.
Would it be possible to display the poster of the event in your school/school district office and promote the activity in your school/school district newsletter or website?
This free presentation is for parents of students from junior kindergarten to grade 12 who have been in Canada for 3 years or less. All immigration status are welcome.
The meeting will also provide a great opportunity for newcomers to talk with other families who have recently arrived in Canada.
This is not a drop-in event, registration is mandatory.
