School Council

better together image

School Council is a team of parents, community members and school staff volunteers who support and enhance the community and school relationship.  It is a great way to be involved, make a difference and support your child's school community. Our School Council contributes to improving student achievement and well-being. They are involved in fundraising initiatives, enhancing and supporting school events, hot lunches, offering support for extracurricular activities, celebrating the diversity of our community, and much more.

We meet throughout the school year.  At each meeting, the administration provides an update on school-related activities and council members may identify topics of interest for presentation/discussion at future meetings.
