We encourage all Trustee candidates to take advantage of the opportunity should one arise, however, once again we would ask you to adhere to the restriction on distribution of campaign material in the classroom or on school property.
Catholic School Parent Councils may also invite Trustee candidates to attend all candidates meetings at their local school. We encourage all candidates to take advantage of this opportunity to meet Catholic school supporters in their Ward.
