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
Welcome back to our past families and welcome aboard to our new ones!
School Council isn't wasting any time this new school year. We're kicking things off with a Fall Festival (in place of Spring Fling) on October 3rd, which coincides with Meet the Teacher Night, and the last day of our Kidney Clothing Drive!
Much like the Spring Fling, our grade 8s will be hosting the BBQ/Bake Sale to fundraise for their end of the year trip, we will have a bouncy slide, face painting (with better paint than last time), candy guess jars, and a Silent Auction.
From September 30th to October 3rd, please bring in your donations for the Kidney Clothing Drive. You can donate during school hours, right after school, and the whole evening of October 3rd. Clothing in any condition, rags, belts, jewelry, purses/bags of any kind (except plastic), linens, curtains, footwear, etc. are accepted, and the school makes money off of the weight of what we donate.
So please come on out on October 3rd to meet your teacher(s), have some dinner, empty your closets, and have a good time with the school community!
Our first Council meeting is Monday, September 9th at 6:30pm in the library. All are welcome!
I hope you all enjoyed the Summer! Let's have a great school year!
