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 meetings for the fall are Wednesday, October 21 and Wednesday, November 25.  These meetings will both be held virtually at 6:30 p.m. Contact the school for information about joining these meetings.  For more information about School Council, click on the links below:
