One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the School Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​​​​

Thank you to all those who attended our first Parent Society.School Council Meeting, particularly nice to see new faces!  And just to temp anyone... we discussed preferred seating for people who contribute so Parent Society... perhaps we will see more new faces at our next meeting!! (wink wink)  At our October meeting we discussed the fundraising campaign plan for the entire school year.  We decided to continue with our previously successful offerings.  Look forward to Cookie Dough order forms coming home in November.  We will be running a new greeting card campaign in February, then VIP Meats just in time for BBQ season.  These three campaigns generate the bulk of our funds which directly go to support classroom activities, artist in residency programs, field trips and other school wide initiatives.  Mrs. Healing reviewed the results of the Accountability Pillar Survey and Provincial Achievement Results and how they directly will guide some of  the leaning goals at Ron Southern.  Areas of focus include literacy, safety and empathy.  We discussed the ongoing concerns with safety during drop-off and pick-up times with walkers and vehicle traffic.  We will continue to endeavor to find solutions to raise awareness and foster safe habits for all students and families.    In November we are pulling together some fun activities around World Kindness Day... "when in doubt ... choose kind!"
