Next Board meeting

Tuesday's board meeting is full of interesting items. We will be reviewing the budget for approval, hearing about full-day kindergarten and debating whether to provide free transportation to Woodcroft and Ritchie students. Hope to see you there. Remember, if you have an opinion on any of these agenda items, you can speak to the Board by registering to speak with Anne Sherwood, Board Secretary (anne.sherwood@epsb.ca) by noon on Tuesday. You will have 2 minutes to speak. A word of advice: write it down and time yourself; 2 minutes goes by very quickly.
