What is Home and School?
We are an independent voice of parents that work together to support public education at the school, school board and provincial level.
We are an organization of volunteers that are committed to ensuring that the education, health, safety and social well-being of children and youth are a priority.
A network of members providing support, training, resources and advice developed over a long history of involvement.
We work together to build a community.
Our meetings will be held off site this year.
Our meeting will be at 80 Irma Court. Just off Dalley drive near the Starbucks (but other side of road) on Wilson on Thursday 21, 2019 at 7:30pm. We hope to see you there.
Please welcome our Executive team:
Shannon Holmes Shedden – President
Julie Payne – Vice President
Andrew Hawryluk – Treasurer
Sarah Rietkoetter – Secretary
Alaina Evans – Past Vice President
Mike Bell – Membership Coordinator
We would like to remind all members that this is an open minded space where everyone’s thoughts and opinions are welcome and will be considered as a group.
Our Home and School Association focus is “Best start for each student “ focus. As well working together with the community to make our home and School families join as one. Keeping that in mind we plan events and fundraisers to be able to do fun things for the kids and community as well as give the students in the school the tools to be able to succeed and do well.
We work with the School Council but are two separate groups. School Council is a government mandated group run by the school principal and the School Principal oversees the decisions that are brought forth.
The Home and School Association is an non-profit Association that was started 102 years ago. We are run by the parents of the school with each other and make decisions as a group as to what we will get behind and show our support.
