OAEC Parent Survey 2017/18

We hope you will take time to complete the attached survey at your earliest convenience.The whole survey should take about 10 - 15 minutes, possibly longer if you have more than one Ocean student. Unfortunately, there is not a way to save and return at a later time. If you have more than one student, some questions ask for your overall experience and some questions are specific to each class day. There are optional comment sections to give you an opportunity to give more details to your answers. The questions with a red asterisk require an answer. Only one completed survey per family is requested but more is welcome.

PLEASE COMPLETE BY MAY 18.

 

There will be a drawing for a $25 gift card to Wonderland Toys for four families who complete the survey by the deadline.  If you choose not to put your name on the survey, you can email me (msauter@losd.ca) to let me know that you have completed it and to add you to the drawing.

 

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.  We truly appreciate your time and input.
