Principal Update February 5 – February 9 – Connect Charter School

Connect Charter Family Weekly Update

February 5 - February 9

This Week's Highlights

Thank you Wakefield Brewster for inspiring us all. You are one of our family!
Our next parent enrichment event (and last one for the year) will be tied to the mental wellness THRIVE program developed for students. Come learn what they’ve been learning, from a parent perspective. Walk away with handy tools to enhance continued conversations at home. Students will once more vote for a movie and we’ll have dinner available to order. Program start time, 6:15pm. More details to come!
CELEBRATION – Connect turns 25 in 2024!
We’re looking forward to the next events, planning in conjunction with the school administration
FEC Family BBQ: Saturday, April 13, 11am-3pm. Join us as we have fun in the field – check out the new ropes course, visit the places your kids talk about from camps, and enjoy lunch with the school community. We are looking into bus transportation from the school to make it easy for everyone to attend. If you’d like to help organize, please let us know!
Parent Cocktail Party: Date TBD. Any keen party planners out there? We are currently looking at venue and probable dates in May. 
Grand Prize: WestJet Flight Pass for Two (approx value $4,250)… anywhere WestJet flies!
2nd Prize: $500 cash… because who doesn’t like cash? 
We don’t want to be a broken record here, but we just received a “full refund” promo code from Skip the Depot. They’ll waive the fee and Connect will get all the $$ from your bottle donation. Use SKIP2024 on your next pickup!
THANKS to those who attended our recent School Council & Parent Society meeting this week. Minutes will be available soon. If you’d like to hear more or have questions about our upcoming events (see above) or fundraisers, please get in touch! Email 

Have a wonderful week, Connect!
