When: Tuesday, March 24, 2015
Time: 2:00pm
Where: School Library

This year, the Burnaby School District is facing significant financial challenges. The Burnaby District Parent Advisory Council has released a statement strongly opposing the Provincial cuts to education, and is working with PACs across Burnaby to gather feedback on this year’s District budget.

As the budget is not yet final, this is an important opportunity to let the District know what is important to Cameron parents. Is it English Language Support? Special needs funding? Classroom resources? Loss of custodian hours? Music and library programs? All feedback is valuable and encouraged!

Social and Emotional Learning

Thank you to all parents who attended the February 17 Parent Information Session on Social and Emotional learning (SEL)!

For those who were unable to attend, we have uploaded a handout summarizing the presentation. The handout explains the five core competencies of Social and Emotional Learning and the 7 Habits. As as school, Cameron has chosen the language of the 7 Habits to explore the concept of SEL. They are from the book The Seven Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey, which is available from Burnaby Public Library.

As part of the Student Led Conferences on March 4, the school invites you to visit the gym where classes will have 7 Habits activities from Kindergarten to Grade 7, as well as a variety of other displays.
