Ward Forum: School Councils 101

Date: Tuesday, October 24, 2017
Time: 6:30 to 8:30 PM
Place: Danforth CTI, 800 Greenwood Avenue (Greenwood Library)
Special Guest: Michelle Munro, Parent Engagement Office, TDSB

2017/2018 Ward Forums
Here is the schedule for this year’s ward forums in ward 15 Toronto Danforth. Note: All meetings will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 this year. This is half an hour earlier than previously. 
Many school councils choose a representative to send to Ward forums to report back. This is a great approach to take, but I also want to remind everyone that anyone is welcome to attend any or all of these events.
I hope to see you there!
