Dear Viking Families and Friends,

On behalf of the Hammarskjold School Council, wed like to thank you
for your support, your engagement, and for those that could make it,
for attending our community town hall on April 16th.  This morning, we
provided Lakehead Board senior administration and all trustees with a
copy of the meeting minutes (attached for your review as well).

The Lakehead Board has scheduled an information session for
Hammarskjold families Thurs. Apr. 25th at 6:30pm in the Hammarskjold
gym.  In providing the minutes from our town hall, weve asked the
board to review and prepare to speak to comments, questions and
concerns that you provided to our school council last Tuesday night.
If you are able, we hope that you will attend this information session along
with us.

Our school council will continue to provide updates, upcoming meeting
dates and meeting minutes to you.  Please do not hesitate to reach out
should you have questions, comments or concerns.  As always, everyone
is welcome to attend our general school council meetings and there is
no minimum meeting requirement to be a member of our council. 

Our next meeting date will be provided shortly.

Thank you again for your ongoing support,
The Hammarskjold School Council
