School Council

School Council Information

School Council is a chance for parents to learn about the school community and larger school board, ask questions, and provide feedback. It is a valuable opportunity to be involved in decisions that directly affect the students of the school.

Administration reports provide information about the school, both in terms of current activities and provide a glimpse into future plans. Questions and feedback from Council is both encouraged and respected.

Staff presentations provide interesting glimpses into various grade levels, allowing you to discover the fun and innovative ways teachers are engaging your children.

School Trustee reports provide the “big picture” at the school board level and information on how their decisions affect your child. We have dedicated School Trustees that are always willing to answer questions and consider feedback from the parent community.

We generally meet on the second Tuesday of each month, at 6:30pm. Everybody is welcome and encouraged to attend the Zoom meetings! Our School Council meeting is held first. This is where you get first-hand info from school administration and our school board trustee about what is going on in the school and the board and how it will affect students. This is your chance to share input and ask questions. Our Friends of Ralph McCall Society meeting immediately follows the Council Meeting. This is the social and fundraising extension of Council. The Society is responsible for organizing fundraising events that help provide many "extras" to students that would otherwise not be possible (like computers, guest speakers, gym equipment, art supplies, etc.) This is your chance to get involved!
