Every school has a school council—a group focused on helping all students succeed.
School councils are groups of parents, community representatives, teaching and non-teaching employees, students and the school principal. Through the active participation of parents, school councils work to improve student achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.

A LETTER FROM PARENT COUNCIL
wanted to take the time to share with you some news from Parent Council.
2020/2021 Council members are:
Co-Chairs:Brie Robson & Jessie McIsaac
Jude Le Brun
Teacher Representatives: Marlene Macklin, Melissa Dore, Joanne Garratt
Community Representative: Carole Madsen
Office Admin/Principals/Treasurers: Bonnie Dermott, Greg Blakeley,
just had our 3rd monthly meeting over Zoom, and have come up with a small
amount of fundraisers that we will run this school year. Due to Covid-19 we
will not be able to run our Fall Festival, Valentine’s Dance-a-thon, Spring
Fling, Kidney Clothing, etc. We realize that many families are more concerned
than ever about finances and we want to be sensitive to that. As always,
participation in school fundraisers is completely optional, and we understand
that not every family can contribute to each one.
have chosen 2 fundraisers that have previously been very successful:
Big Box of Cards, which will be available in the Spring. Each box has 33
beautiful cards for only $33.
Cookie Dough, which will be available the end of November, for pick up before
Christmas. Prices range between $8-$18 depending on what you choose to order.
office will be running Vista Gift Cards. This fundraiser is super easy. You
purchase gift cards and then spend them as cash when you’re shopping. There is
a huge list of options, and by purchasing through Vista, the school receives a
percentage back from each card. So with this specific fundraiser, you are not
out any extra money than what you would be spending on personal groceries and
because Hot Lunches are cancelled this year, Dominos has offered us a very
exciting new fundraiser! It’s called Raise The Dough. You purchase a pizza card
that gives you a $15 coupon and multiple buy 1 get 1 free pizzas for the
duration of the 30 days. This coupon will be $20 and will be run in February.
you on behalf of our entire Parent Council team for any and all fundraising
efforts! It truly enhances our entire school! We are very proud of our school
