  • Enhance communication to parents, families and the community at large
  • Encourage and promote participation and involvement by all stakeholder groups within our school  community
  • To build funding partnerships within our community that will continue to provide additional resources for our school community that aren’t currently provided by the Board

  • To assist in the determination of broad school priorities

Our role is:

  • To act in an advisory capacity to make recommendations to the school Principal and, as appropriate, the Board
  • To improve student achievement and enhance accountability of the educational system to parents.
  • To place the overall interests of the school and students first.
