​​Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Parent societies are a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. The school principal is not part of this group. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Fundraising Priority

 "Learning Commons initiative"

“A learning commons is a whole school approach to building a participatory learning community. The library learning commons is the physical and virtual collaborative learning hub of the school. It is designed to engineer and drive future-oriented learning and teaching throughout the entire school. Inquiry, project/problem-based learning experiences are designed as catalysts for intellectual engagement with information, ideas, thinking, and dialogue. Reading thrives, learning literacies and technology competencies evolve, and critical thinking, creativity, innovation and playing to learn are nourished. Everyone is a learner; everyone is a teacher working collaboratively toward excellence. (https://llsop.canadianschoollibraries.ca/library-learning-commons/)

 In updating our current learning commons, we are endeavoring to enhance the use of the space as a collaborative hub where students can share, explore and inquire.  Further, we would like to create further flexibility in seating to address the diverse needs of students.  Fundraising dollars would be used to purchase items such as:

  • moveable whiteboard tables
  • seating that can be reconfigured/rearranged based on learning task
  • wobble stools
  • ball chairs

 As we make adjustments to our learning commons, we hope to create collaborative hubs spilling out into other shared spaces around the school to create further flexibility.

Meeting Schedule

We invite all parents and caregivers to join us in conversations about how to raise funds, and how to spend them in support of the school community. Our meetings are held immediately after School Council meetings, typically starting around 7:45 p.m.

For meeting dates, refer back to the School Council page.

For agendas and minutes, check out the Resources section. 

See our Calendar page for dates and times.
