May 9, 2002.


The Northbrook School Advisory Council will sign its Letter of Agreement tonight.  While the council has operated for 3-4 years, the signing tonight will make the council an official body.  Congratulations and thank you to the parents, staff, and community members who have worked through this process on behalf of our school community.

Neighbourhood Watch:

Neighbourhood Watch and Block Parent representatives from our neighbourhood will be offering an “Open House” on Tuesday, May 21, 2002 from 7:00-8:30pm in the Northbrook Community Centre Multi-purpose Room.  Learn more about how these cost free and effective programs can make our neighbourhood a safer place to live.

Thank you:

Grade Six students wish to thank the members of the community for supporting the grade six chocolate bar campaign.  The students raised about $2500.00 to support their class trip.

Special Request:  Please remind your children, as we have done, that they are to check in at the office when they arrive late.  We have had some recent experiences where the children have gone directly to class.  If the attendance book has already arrived at the office, we are going to call you to erroneously report that your child is missing.
