We were happy to see parents out to our School Council meeting last week. Much information was presented about school initiatives by our principal and teacher representatives. Parents were able to ask questions and hear how they could contribute to our school and their child's education.
School Council elections were held and we are pleased to announce that our executive for the 2016-2017 year is:
Chair: Ellen Crackower
Treasurer: Alice Ko
Secretary: Brandi Sherman
We also had parents sign up for several committees to help on different projects throughout the year. We always need more help to make things happen smoothly. If you are interested in helping with one of these committees, or have any other ideas to support the school, please send Ellen a quick email at email@example.com
- Community Outreach
- Parent Outreach
- Spirit Wear
- Hot Lunches
Idea's for fundraising this year included creating a Family Recipe Book with family friendly recipe contributions from Westminster students and families. Contact us if you'd like to help with this initiative and stay tuned for more information about purchasing a copy for your recipe library. We will also be bringing back Spirit Wear by popular demand so stay tuned for more about that as well!
FAMILY AUTUMN BALL: As you know our first Community Outreach event is the Family Autumn Ball this Thursday, October 27th at 6-8. We hope you can all join us and participate in this fun annual event to support our school and community. Entrance fee is $2 at the door unless you've pre-ordered a dinner package. DJ music, dancing and glow in the dark fun will be had by all!
An engaged and active parent community through the work of our School Council is what makes Westminster a strong community school. Please help in whatever way you can.
Your School Council
Next Meeting: November 30th, 2016
