On behalf of the Avon Maitland Parent Involvement Committee, I would like to invite you to attend the first Ignite Parents event ever held in Canada. Ignite Parents is an evening of quick and enlightening presentations in the field of education from educators, parents and students within our school board. Ignite Parents is our parent engagement initiative of the year and our goal is to engage, inspire and enlighten parents.
The idea to organize an Ignite Parents event came from the Ignite concept itself. Ignite is a community building speaking event hosted in cities all across the world where people gather to share their passions and ideas using 20 slides that auto advance every 15 seconds for a total of just 5 minutes. The motto of an Ignite event is: “Enlighten us, but make it quick!” We loved that idea and the unique format, so we decided to adapt the Ignite concept and narrow the focus and theme to education.
Ignite Parents promises to be a fun and exciting evening with inspiring presentations by passionate people. The event is free and open to all, there will be displays, plenty of great food, refreshments, door prizes, live music, a cash bar and of course, some fabulous presentations! For more information and to register for Ignite Parents you can visit our website atIgniteParents.ca I hope you’ll join us at the Arden Park Hotel, Wednesday, May 2nd from 7 to 9pm. And prepare to be engaged…prepare to be enlightened!
