Parent Council is an excellent way for parents to get involved in their children’s education. Council advises the principal and the Board on a variety of issues and activities relating to student achievement, curriculum goals and priorities, school budget priorities, school safety, renovation plans, after-school activities, and criteria for selection of new principals. To that end, we are always looking for new volunteers and new Committee Chairs.

If you are interested in getting involved, leading an Executive Committee, or volunteering to support our committees, please send an email to no later than October 5th.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Parent Council via email at

We hope to see you online, on October 7th!
