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!
