Make Your Voices Heard!

It has come to the PAC’s attention that at this time, the VSB has only allocated one French Immersion kindergarten and one English kindergarten class to Trafalgar in the fall of 2017. No third kindergarten class has yet been allocated as VSB staff attempt to determine how they will meet the newly restored classroom size and composition requirements. Changes to the incoming kindergarten classes may have impacts on the Trafalgar parent community in the years to come.
The PAC has addressed a letter to the Trafalgar Director of Instruction regarding this change — you can read it here
Parents who wish to sign their name to this letter may email the PAC info@trafalgarpac.ca with their (names and children’s names) to be added to the signature of the letter. Parents who wish to write their own letter to make their concerns known to the VSB can write info@trafalgarpac.ca, and the PAC will forward letters.
