About The Event
Our intent for this “coffee chat” is to think strategically about how we can build more active engagement on these urgent and important issues with a core parent group (grandparents are also welcome) in a way that adds value, rather than being another item in an onerous list of tasks. Over time, our hope is to create opportunities for families to get together at the school in enjoyable ways to form a community around what our kids are learning. Doug Anderson, Indigenous scholar and co-author of Natural Curiosity, has offered his time to support this core group with organizing and communicating with school staff and families on the possibilities and challenges, with a focus on how JICS leads in these areas as a lab school, and with how events involving the wider school community are shared. Everyone is welcome!
