What’s School Council all about?

If you had fun at the recent Bazaar and love participating in the school lunch programs, come out to meet some of the School Council members who help run these activities!

Council meetings are a great way to get updates from the principal on school initiatives and also learn about how your students benefit from the funds raised by Council.

The next Council meeting is on Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the staff room. Babysitting is available in the gym.

Check out the minutes from the last meeting and the agenda for this one coming up.

We hope to see you there!
