Louis Riel PS – a great day with the students and parents.  Thank to you the mom who returned to see me for a third time this evening (in only four weeks in Calgary this year).  Your students were great, and parents very engaging.  A special thanks to the school Principal who made a great offer to assist in my Sept 2013 family presentation (details to follow).

Calgary Girls School

May 27, 2013

A school totally connected with technology!  I really enjoyed speak from grade 4 to grade 9 girls today on the safe use of technology and social networking.  When speaking with the older girls, we ran into overtime, and had to rush them out to the buses!  And even though we ran late, 25-30 girls stayed behind to ask even more questions.  Very rewarding!  Thank you for the great parent support that turned out this evening – who also made it a night that ran into overtime!  But like I always state – I won’t leave until the last question is answered!  Thank You Calgary Girls School!

Thank You Bishop Marrocco HS for allowing me to speak to your parents and students this evening. Some great dialogue before the presentation on our children and their electronics.  You are sure to have great debates further to this presentation between staff and students!

Last Day for the MOE PRO Grant

May 21, 2013

This has NOTHING to do with my daily updates on schools I visit – BUT it is the last day to submit your application for the Ministry of Education Parent Reaching Out Grant.  Your schools kindly reminded us of that!  Have a great day..  off to Bishop Marrocco HS

WOW! What an engaged parent community!  I thought we were going to break a time record with Q&A and the discussion that each segment in the presentation had started.  Your feedback for this evening was tremendous.  Thank You.  Parent Council did a great job in marketing to bring a very good crowd out this evening.  Students – Great questions, and you had your parents asking a lot of questions!

Floradale PS, Peel

May 15, 2013

Today we brought to the attention of teachers and parents how young your students are engaging with certain technologies.  Our Grade 3/4 session was an eye opener for many.  Great questions from both large groups today.  Thank You to the parents for attending this evening and parent council for bringing this day together.  And when a Principal tells another that “Paul Davis rocks” – I’ll take that as a compliment!

Port Weller PS Niagara

Still in Niagara, my next stop was at Port Weller PS.  Two large groups of students, and both very good listeners.  Thank You to the great parent turnout this evening with great interaction, and fantastic feedback at the end of the night.  Special thanks to your Principal who immediately wanted me to return next school year!
