In its monthly recognition of excellence, the Rainy River District School Board tonight will salute the Rainy River “Strengthening Families for the Future” program.
Heather Campbell will explained how the program is an example of how the school and community work together to support the students and their families.
The curriculum intent is to assist families in their efforts to have enhanced, safe, and respectful relationships between family members through learning how to spend time together and have fun, and to have a smoother running household due to improvements in things like family activities and responsible planning and problem-solving skills.
Volunteers from many organizations worked together to make the program a success.
It has made a difference in the lives of the participants by improving family relationships, as well as developing more love and respect between one another.
Also at tonight’s meeting, which gets underway at 7 p.m. at Rainy River High School, trustees will:
•welcome student trustee Meredith Ivall of Atikokan High School, who will take her oath of office;
•be presented with the EQAO results from Grades 3 and 6, and Grade 9;
•hear reports from the Policy Committee, Special Education Advisory Committee, the Finance Committee, and the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association;
•receive a director’s update from Education Director Jack McMaster;
•receive a personnel report updated to October, 2007; and
