School Site Council PTA meeting The Greenbrook School School Site Council is a group of teachers, parents and community members entrusted with the task of academic goal setting. This school based management group gives the entire school community a voice in making important decisions which directly affect the quality of education in our school. The School Site Council acts as a liaison between parents, teachers, administrators and Board of Education members. It consists of six parents, five teachers and two school administrators. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month. Some projects which have been developed by the Council are Author's Night, K-2 Bedtime Story Hour, and Math, Science, and Technology Night.

October 21, 2008 Susan Schatzman and Nancy Blanes welcomed everyone. They mentioned that the Multiple Intelligence Workshop was cancelled for that evening. It was discussed that maybe it could be incorporated into Math, Science and Technology Night.

Dr. Speesler discussed the presentation of the Quality Annual Assurance Report (QAAR). The Board has a goal to communicate information to parents better. He also discussed professional development for the board.

Mrs. Holliday introduced her administrative intern, Dr. Cakir. She then discussed Violence and Vandalism Awareness week which is a mandated program. The focus of the week would be school safety activities and an assembly with Officer Rickle. Mrs. Pagonis would also be speaking to groups during the week.

School pictures will be the next day.

Thursday will be Bedtime Story Hour. 115 students and 115 parents were signed up. Mrs. Holliday would read That’s Good, That’s Bad.

Halloween will be the Dance-A-Thon. K-1 will be from 9:30 to 10:15. 3-5 will be 10:30 to 11:15. The Halloween Parade will be at 2:00.

October 30 from 7:00 to 8:30 will be another Parent Academy. The topic is Effectively Communicating with Your Child’s Teachers.

In the Greenbrook section of the QAAR, Mrs. Holliday included the suggestion from SSC to create an informative newsletter to go home to parents. The newsletter will give them hints on things they can work on at home with their children. One suggestion was about how to select appropriate books for their children to read.

A Safe and Caring School program has been initiated. Part of this includes a revamping of lunch and recess procedures. Teachers are also involved in reading Teaching Children to Care.

Discussion was then focused on maybe creating a survey to find out what parents would like to see offered in future workshops.

Ms. Glass discussed having a Celebrating Uniqueness Day and a Multicultural Day.

Mrs. Sisko discussed her class election project. Students in her class registered other students to vote. November 3rd will be Greenbrook Election Day.

Future events are Math Science and Technology Night on February 19 and Author’s Night on May 15.
