That night the school will also celebrate the opening of the new parent lending library. Parenting resources, including books and DVDs, will be on display and parents will be informed on how the items can be accessed. Displays from community agencies will also be available for viewing.
The event and creation of the parent lending library are made possible through a Parents Reaching Out (PRO) Grant from the Ministry of Education. The grant is intended to enhance parent involvement, highlight the school as an important resource for parents in the community and provide skill-building opportunities for parents.
