School Council is…
Social: Joining Council offers a great opportunity to meet new people. (Parents, teachers and administrators) We go out for beers and coffee!
Constructive: Nothing beats the rewarding feeling of seeing projects from their initiation to completion and the impact it has on the children. Our committees make good things happen.
Educational: It provides great information sharing around issues in education. Learn about: curriculum, staffing, operations and policies.
Charitable: Every year Council looks for ways to reach out to less fortunate schools in our zone and our city. Whether it is in the donation of goods or funds, social responsibility is one of Council’s important goals.
Political: Council contributes to community issues and has a role in advocating for changes in public education.
Supportive: Council is representative of our parent community and has a role in hearing their concerns and assisting or advising them on solutions and available resources.
School Council is a fantastic way to get tapped into the school community. Being an active member opens the door to countless opportunities and enrichment for our children. School Council is always hoping that more parents will share their ideas and their time to keep our great programs and commitments alive.
