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 subcommittee of the council and follows the Council constitution.

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.
