School Council

School Councils are important partners in education. School Councils provide a forum through which parents and other members of school communities can contribute to improving student achievement and well-being and enhance the accountability of the education system. 

Our School Council meets eight or nine times a year. Our School Council focuses on information sharing and discussion, and sometimes, how to improve student opportunities through fundraising. At each meeting, school administration provides an update on school-related activities and council members may identify topics of interest for presentation/discussion at future meetings or extra special interest sessions. 

Our School Council membership includes:

  • Co-Chairs: Jim Jodoin and Sarah Phinney

  •  Secretary: Dawn Duffenais

  • Treasurer: Patricia Parks

Our Annual General Meeting for 2020-2021 was held on Wednesday, September 23, when we elected an executive and members-at-large for this year.  We welcome additional members-at-large to our next meeting. All parents/guardians are welcome at every meeting, whether you are an official voting member or not.  Our next meeting is Wednesday, November 25, to be held virtually at 6:30 p.m. You can join by clicking here. If that doesn't work, contact for help. For more information about School Council, click on the links below:
