On behalf of the School Council Executive, welcome to new families and welcome back to returning families! We hope that all of you had an enjoyable, safe summer and you were able to disconnect and take some time away. Hopefully the first week of school has gone smoothly for you and your children.
Did you know that simply being a parent or guardian of a child at Pleasant Park means you are already a part of School Council? The meetings are open to all parents, guardians, and care givers of children at Pleasant Park and you can choose to get involved a little or a lot, but either way, we hope you will participate and be a part of the conversation.
School Council meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 6:45. We keep things friendly, focused and fun. Attending the meetings is a great way to meet other parents, guardians, care givers and school staff and to hear of all the exciting things going on in the school.
We’re very excited to be returning to in person meetings this year, however if you’re unable or uncomfortable coming in person we will have a virtual option available as well (link to be sent out with agenda prior to meeting).
This school year’s first meeting will be held on Wednesday September 28th, in the school library at 6:45 where we will hold elections for any contested and unfilled positions on School Council. You can find the self-nomination form here, and use this form to nominate somebody else. Please submit them to Principal Cruise by September 23rd.
If you are wondering what the role School Council plays in the school community as well as what the roles of the Executive and Coordinators are, they can be found here. Or, find out more about what we are doing here on the Pleasant Park School Council website, the School Council private Facebook page or sign up for the School Council mailing list sign up here.
On behalf of the current council Executive, a big thank you for your participation and support over past years and years to come. Best of luck to your children in their future endeavors.
