School Council Members

Please consider joining our School Council group! Our School Council acts as an advisory group to the school Principal. The Council is made up of eleven elected parents. The School Council will meet 6-8 times a year. The mandate of the School Council includes:
*providing information and advice to the Principal, Staff, and Board of Trustees, *dialoguing and communicating on school matters as they pertain to school initiatives, policies, organization and activities,
*providing opportunities for the school community to be more directly involved in the education of their children,
*fostering good relations among parents, staff, students, parish and community. Watch for the school calendar which will outline times and dates of proposed meetings. Please understand that even though the voting members of the Council are only those elected or appointed, all parents are invited and encouraged to attend Council meetings. Items for the agenda must be submitted to the Chairperson one week prior to each meeting.
