Revised Constitution and Bylaws

April 17th, 2015 · Uncategorized

This is a reminder that at the general meeting of the PAC called for Wednesday, April 29, 2015 there will be a vote to decide whether to bring in a new Constitution and Bylaws for the PAC.

The main change from the existing Constitution and Bylaws to the proposed document, is to move the PAC from one governed by an intermediary large executive council to one governed more directly by all parents. Parents will directly elect a small Steering Committee which will organize meetings at which all parents will have the opportunity to contribute to the PAC. This will be a more democratic way of conducting the affairs of the PAC, in keeping with the desires of parents communicated over the past year. It is also aligned with how most PACs operate in this city.

A copy of the proposed new Constitution & Bylaws was posted on our website on March 26, 2015. This draft was prepared as of March 23, 2015. After that work was completed, on March 26, 2015 the government introduced into the Legislature a bill that will eliminate School Planning Councils. As the process for electing School Planning Council representatives was integrated into the proposed Constitution & Bylaws, it is now necessary to remove those sections from the proposal.

Accordingly, a revised proposed Constitution & Bylaws is available. Aside from the removal of sections dealing with School Planning Council and its representatives, the new document contains no material changes from the original document.

There are, however, a number of improvements to the document that clarify the wording without changing the substance. These changes originated from the questions and comments received at the information night held at Lord Byng on April 15th, 2015.  The information night benefited from the input of parent John Puddifoot, and we are grateful for his careful reading of the document. Where he proposed changes that would clarify the existing intent, his suggestions were accepted.

We look forward to seeing you on April 29th.

Sincerely,

Jake, Christine, Mary and Tracey

罗宾家长社区社交活动

March 26th, 2015 · Uncategorized

我们已经定了一个时间,一个场地,和一个计划! 我们所需要的是大量的义工来帮助我们实现这个计划!

事件: 我们正在筹划一个葡萄酒和奶酪并有罗宾学生表演的音乐娱乐活动的晚会。

时间: 2015年5月14日星期四晚上从7:30 到10:00.

地点: Byng艺术走廊

原因: 我们的目标是创建一个有趣的和非正式的社交活动让罗宾的家长都能互相认识

以下是需要义工帮忙的事项:

事件的名称或主题: 那些能吸引你注意力的主意都非常欢迎;

推广: 我们需要1或者2个人设计一个传单和开发一个推广计划,包括公布这个信息到学校和网站;

装饰布置: 我们需要租用一些小的高的桌子和桌布。我们还需要人摆放酒杯,纸巾,水杯和桌上的装饰品;

食物: 奶酪,咸饼干,水果,蔬菜,巧克力。我们需要义工帮忙找到无偿捐赠或者有特别折扣的食物;

饮料: 葡萄酒,不含酒精的饮料,苏打水。我们需要义工帮助找到无偿捐赠或者有特别折扣的葡萄酒和饮料。当天晚上我们还需要找2-3个有Serving It Right 牌照的人来提供饮料酒水服务;

娱乐活动: 我们需要一个义工去找愿意并能在那天晚上提供音乐表演的学生。我们还需要一些额外的能帮忙发放餐前小食服务和提供会场布置会后清理服务的学生和一个能够配合这些学生的义工;

活动内容: 我们正在寻找一些义工为家长组织“破冰”活动。我们希望创建一个让所有家长感觉是被欢迎的活动,我们不愿意在所有出席的家长中设置任何障碍。基于这个原因,我们这次活动不售票,也不做募捐活动。当晚的酒吧为现金酒吧只求能够保本,但这一事件很大程度上依赖于捐赠的物品。我们希望有社区成员能够领导和联系这件事。

我希望有更多的义工来促成这件事。我认为这次的组织筹划将会体现在社区筹划建设本身之中!

如果您有兴趣提供义工帮助,请发送邮件到broeningj@gmail.com 并让我知道您更愿意提供哪些方面的帮助。

我真切地期望收到您的回复!

Our Byng Parent Community Social!

March 26th, 2015 · Uncategorized

We have a date, a venue and a plan! What we need now are lots of volunteers to help us make this happen!

What: We are planning a wine and cheese evening with musical entertainment by Byng students.

When: Thursday, May 14th from 7:30pm to 10:00pm

Where: Byng Art Gallery

Why: Our goal is to create a fun and informal social event where all Byng parents can get to know each other.

Here is where we need volunteers to help:

  • Name or theme for the event: Something that grabs your attention – ideas welcome!
  • Promotion: We need one or two people to create a leaflet and develop a promotion plan including posting the information in the school and on the website.
  • Decorations: We need to rent small high tables and table cloths. We also need to organize wine glasses, napkins, cups and table decorations.
  • Food: Cheese, crackers, fruit, veggies, chocolate. We need some volunteers who would like to source donations or special deals on food.
  • Drinks: Wine, soft drinks, sparkling water. We need volunteers who can source donations or special rates on wine and soft drinks. We are also looking for 2/3 volunteers who have a Serving It Right certificate and could serve beverages on the night.
  • Entertainment: We need a volunteer to find students who would be willing and able to contribute to musical entertainment on the night. We are also looking for additional student volunteers to serve appetizers and help with set up/clean up and someone to coordinate those students.
  • Activities: We are looking for volunteers to organize ice-breaking activities for the parents. We would like to create an event at which all parents feel welcome and we do not want to put any barriers in the way of attendance. For this reason we are not requiring tickets for the event and we are not making this a fund raiser. The bar will be a cash bar to recuperate costs but this event relies heavily on donations of the items needed. We are hoping that there are community member who have leads or connections.

I am hoping for lots of volunteers to make this event happen and I think the organizing will be a community building event in itself!

Please email me at broeningj@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering and let me know what you would like to take on.

I really look forward to hearing from you!

Julia and the Parent Social organizing team
