Parent Letters to MLAS, re: Jr. Kindergarten

Yesterday evening, the Yellowknife Catholic school board held a parent information evening regarding the upcoming school year in our district.

During the meeting Lori MacMillan-Gallant, the ESJS PAC chair, encouraged all parents to submit a letter to their MLAS asking that full funding be put in place for the implementation of Jr. Kindergarten. This came after concerns were expressed around the proposed cuts to the K-12 programming to supplement JK implementation. This link leads to a sample letter for parents to submit to their MLA, a copy of the letter is also available at the ESJS front office and will be sent home in agendas for students in K-Grade 4, you may also write your own letter if you so choose. Once written please email your letters to lorimacmillan@hotmail.com and she will hand deliver them.

The next Legislative Assembly session begins Jan. 31 and education will be one of the first items on the table. To ensure your voice is heard, please submit your letter this week.

Thank you for your continued support!
