Hello Wonderful Victory Staff!
We are writing to let you know that School Council's website (www.vpsfamily.ca) and Twitter (@VPSFamily) are up, running, and active. To date, the new website has 71 different people checking it out, and our Twitter account has 19 followers - with new folks joining every day. The next step is to add a well-monitored Facebook page, which has been a successful avenue of communication for other School Councils. All of these online modalities will help with School Council's overall aim of improving communications between parents and school.
Please know that we are happy (eager!) to post Victory announcements on our website (blog/calendar), Twitter, and soon-to-be Facebook page. While students are notified of events during morning announcements, it may be helpful to reinforce this information by sharing it with parents via these online portals. You can see that some events have already been posted on the blog (http://www.vpsfamily.ca/blog/) and on the calendar (http://www.vpsfamily.ca/calendar/). You can see our tweets by following our account. Anything from in-class events to field-trips to assemblies to extra-curriculars... the more information we can share, the more parents will realize how much y'all are doing for our kids. You can notify parents of events coming up, or share good news and photos (with permissions) of events that have taken place. It takes us two seconds to add a blurb onto the website, and our hope is to keep the site very fresh, so the more info you feed our way, the more dynamic it will be.
Please send your information to the School Council address at email@example.com. We check this email daily, and add info to the website each evening.
Thank you again for all that you do.
:) Wendy and Heather
(School Council Co-Chairs)
