School Council November 19

According to Alberta Education, school councils are collective associations of parents, teachers, principals, staff, students and community representatives who seek to work together to promote the well-being and effectiveness of the entire school community and thereby to enhance student learning. A school council is a means to facilitate cooperation among all the participants in the local school.

If you have any question or any suggestions for our upcoming School Council Meetings please email Mrs. Melissa Humby, Principal.

Meeting Dates:  We will hold a minimum of five meetings per year. All meetings will be held in the PLRS library at 6:00 pm. We will try to meet on the last Monday of every other month!

School Council meeting dates for the 2018 -2019 school year:

Parent Teacher Interviews

Parent Teacher Interviews are on November 21 from 4:00 - 8:00 pm in the gym. Come on out and visit with teachers to find out how your child is doing in classes.

There will be a number of events going on in the evening:

Comic Con 

Fundraising Sales Ends 

Grad Bake Sale

There are several post-secondary schools representatives who have committed to attending PLRS during interviews (so far).  This is an amazing opportunity for students, parents and guardians to speak with a 'live, breathing body' about their interests and the programs available in different places without travelling, booking an appointment or being in a crowd. 

NAIT, MacEwan, UofA (and TYP program Transition Year Program for Indigenous students), Augustana, LaSalle College and Maskwacis Cultural College will be set up in the Common Area.


Please come out and ask questions from these representatives and learn about future opportunities.
