Welcome!group of kids

All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend meetings of the council which will be held in the classroom across from the office. We usually meet on the third Monday of the month at 6:30 pm.  Parents and teachers are invited to join us at our monthly meetings.  We hope to see many of you attend, volunteer and participate. During our November meeting we explored priorities for this year. These include improving student achievement, promoting school safety and work on the school improvement plan.

Please see the Calendar tab of the website for the next meeting.


Mary Hopkins School Council works with the principal, teachers, and staff

  • to enhance and enrich the lives of our children and make our school a great place to learn.
  • keep parents informed and involved in our school community
  • work with the school to prioritize how school-generated funds are budgeted and distributed.
  • Some of our subcommittees (such as PAC) help to fund-raise, find parent volunteers for school programs and activities.

PAC is a sub committee of the council and follows the Council constitution.
