Friday April 19th Next Steps with SMART Boards

Hi everyone,

We are excited to see you all again! Here is everything you need to know (hopefully!) for next Friday’s get together. Please email if you have any questions of concerns.

Instructor: Sasha Zekulin, a SMART certified Education Consultant

Date: Friday, April 19th

Time: 9am to 2:30pm

Location: #103-814 Goldstream Ave.

Parking: You may park in the school parking lot. However, should this fill up, there is additional parking across from the water

  Wheel Pub (off of Peatt Road / turn left if driving south west towards Goldstream)). Drive into the church parking lot and on the left side is a gated area which is Public Parking. It looks like an alleyway but is actual parking for the public. People CAN NOT park in the large gravel parking area you first drive into as it’s for the church and they will tow immediately.
