Mary Hopkins School Council works with the principal, teachers, and staff
- School Council provides a forum through which parents and other members of the school community can be part of a partnership focus on student well-being and achievement.
- At School Council, we will keep families informed about what is happening at the school, the board, and the provincial level of education.
- By giving information to families, getting feedback from them, and presenting their views to the school and the school board, a school council involves the community in the discussion of educational issues
- Some of our subcommittees help to fund-raise, find parent volunteers for school events and activities (currently on pause).
Want to submit an agenda item?
Agenda items are to be submitted at least 7 days prior to the meeting date by emailing our chair.
Copies of the agenda will be sent out to the council prior to the meeting date.
The council is elected at the beginning of each school year and the positions are held for one year. The council currently consists of approximately 9 parents, the principal, teacher and community representative. We are currently exploring including a non-teaching staff member, plus additional members of the community. If you know someone who might be interested please contact our school council chair.
