On behalf of Parent Council, Welcome! This school year’s first virtual meeting will be held on October 7 at 6:45pm. We hope to see you then! The meeting will be held on Google Meet. Check your Pleasant Park PS Weekly Update email from Friday, October 2 for the link to the meeting. Please make sure you have downloaded the app before trying to sign in. The Agenda for the meeting is posted on the Parent Council website here, along with the Agendas, Minutes and Financial Reports from our past meetings.
Simply being a parent or guardian of a child at Pleasant Park means you are already part of Parent Council. Congratulations! You can choose to get involved a little or a lot, but either way, we hope you will come out and be part of the conversation.
Parent Council meetings run once a month. We keep things friendly, focused and fun. Participating in the meetings is a great way to meet parents, school staff and hear of all the exciting things going on in the school.
At our first meeting on October 7, we will hold elections for any contested and unfilled positions on Parent Council. You can find the self-nomination form here, and use this form to nominate somebody else. Please submit them to Principal Petrie before October 6.
Roles on the Executive include: Chair/Co-Chairs, Treasurer, Secretary. Their roles can be found here. We also typically look for Parent Coordinators to help with on-site meals (pizza and popcorn), community building, fundraising, special events etc. The list can be found here: School Council Members
In addition to our website, Parent Council also has a very active private Facebook page. Please consider joining to keep up to date on the latest news and events.
If you haven’t signed up for the Parent Council mailing list yet, you can sign up here.
Parent Council is focused on fundraising and organizing events that enrich the school experience and school community, such as our Book sale, year end BBQ, Movie Nights, Math/Science nights and special speakers. We also contribute to school and classroom needs that cannot be budgeted by the school such as robotics supplies for the Robotics club, the school Play, Kindergarten special events, French and English reading books, sports equipment, field trip bussing and much more. If you have any questions at all, please send a quick note or drop into a meeting.
We hope to see you October 7!
