School Council

What is School Council?

We are parents who support our school community (students, families, teachers, and staff) by creating family events, updating our playground, volunteering in the school, and bringing in specialized educators and programs to the classrooms.   We also run the school milk program and staff appreciation day.

Please join us at our monthly meetings to learn about current school initiatives and activities.  We would like to hear your input about fundraisers, educational programs, and other school initiatives.
Contact us:

School Council Meetings

Our meetings are held virtually on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30pm.

Parent Volunteers

If you cannot attend Thursday School Council meetings, but want to be involved, please email us at so that we can add you to our volunteer email list.  We will send emails requesting volunteers throughout the year, and would greatly appreciate your help.
