School Councils were formed to support the school and provide the opportunity to advise the principal and school board on any matters relating to the school and education. Our School Council is made up of parents, staff, students and community members. We are a fairly informal group who meet once a month to discuss school issues.
At every meeting, members have the opportunity to hear reports from the school administration, student representative, and committee of school councils' representative as well as a report from the school board trustee assigned to our school. Participation is encouraged and there is usually lively discussion on a wide range of topics.
There isn't any fundraising done by our School Council! According to the School Council Regulation we are to be given the opportunity to provide advice on the development of the school's mission, vision, and philosophy; policies; annual education plan; annual results report and the budget.
Meeting Dates for 2019-2020
Meetings are held in the upstairs Learning Commons (Library) starting at 6:30 pm. Regular attendance isn't required. Please check out our school calendar and weekly Falcons View for scheduled School Council Meetings.
NOTE: Dates are tentative and can change if the Chairperson and the Principal determine that it is necessary for the meeting date to be changed.

Staff Appreciation Event
On Wednesday June 5, 2019 Bev Facey is hosting our annual Staff Appreciation Event. This is an opportunity to recognize all staff for their work, care, and dedication to our children and we know that many parents would like to contribute to the success of this event.
We would like to thank Lisa Clamp for coordinating this event for the last 5 years. This year Lisa has passed the torch and her expertise on to us, Marlene Crippin and Cathy Jones. We certainly have a lot to live up to! Thank you once again Lisa!
Again this year we are asking parents for donations of food items for the staff to enjoy at their final staff meeting of the school year. As well, we will be accepting monetary donations that will be used to purchase any shortcomings of food items, decorations, and a few door prizes should funds permit.
Examples of contributions that would be appreciated include:baking of any sort (squares, cookies, cakes), vegetable trays, fruit trays, chips and salsa or dips, cheese and crackers, or any other type of appetizer that is simple to serve and share.
Food items will be gratefully accepted in the front office on the morning of Wednesday June 5 from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM. We have access to refrigerate any items that need to be kept cool until they are served at the meeting.
If you are interested in making a food donation, or have any questions, please email Marlene Crippin by Friday May 31, 2019 at firstname.lastname@example.org to advise what you would want to add to this event.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and hopefully, your contribution.
