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.
