APRIL 17th, 2015

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to another year of Getting to Great, Halifax Regional School Board’s continuous school improvement survey. The purpose of this letter is to provide you with some details and information on why completion of this survey is so important to the success of students within our board.

The Getting to Great survey provides an opportunity for students in grades 4-12, all parents/guardians, and all teachers to share information that will help us improve schools. We are on a mission to make every school a great school, but we cannot get to great without you. Your voluntary participation in this survey will help us to identify the strengths and areas for growth at our school. This will enable us to enhance the opportunities we provide for students to learn. Your input is valuable in helping us make improvements that will directly impact your child’s learning and school experience.

The online survey is available from April 20th, 2015. Please visit the website: http://survey.hrsb.ns.ca  select  Rocky Lake Junior High to start the survey. You are welcome to complete a survey for each of your children attending our school. Please remember, all survey information is anonymous and is not used to evaluate individuals. At the end of the survey, you will find space to make any additional comments you wish to share with us anonymously.

Thank you for your participation; your input is very important to us!
