October SAC Meeting

We hope everyone is enjoying these lovely second summer days. It’s hard to believe we are a month into school already, but alas, we are, and cooler weather is coming.

Please join us on Tuesday, October 19, 2021 at 7:00pm for our next SAC meeting. Here is the agenda, but, truly, the big ticket item is that we will hold our annual elections for executive positions. If you’re considering throwing your hat into the ring for any of the roles, please do! Filling executive positions on council helps us to do more collectively to contribute to our school and community and ensures we are effectively representing our parent and caregiver community. You can find more info on our executive positions here and the link to the online nomination form is here. Please try to submit your nomination form by end of day Sunday, October 17th. (If you filled out a form prior to our meeting last month, no need to redo.)

Here is some information on the work of school advisory councils.

First Council Meeting is Tomorrow

Reminder! Our first SAC meeting of the year is tomorrow evening at 7pm. (see the Zoom details below)

Unfortunately, time got away from us and because of a slight process mixup, executive elections will need to be held at our October meeting instead. If you’ve already submitted your nomination form for a role on this year’s council, not to worry, those nominations are good and will be brought forward for the October meeting. If you held off on submitting a form because you weren’t 100% yet, this delay is great news because you can join us at our meeting tomorrow night, where you’ll see that we’re a pretty easygoing bunch and that your contribution matters, and then you can go fill out that nomination form!

Tomorrow’s agenda will include: Welcome to council, Synopsis of roles for those considering joining, Updating bylaws, and more!

Welcome Back + Join Us!

We hope everyone is settling back into school nicely. It is so wonderful to see the schoolyard buzzing with activity and masked smiles after such a long absence from it!

As the pandemic continues to affect our school routines and experiences, families, teachers and staff coming together to ensure a safe, happy, and caring environment for our students continues to be a top priority.

…and that’s where the School Advisory Council comes in.

You do not have to take on an official role with the SAC to join our meetings. Whether your child is learning in the classroom or taking classes online you are part of the Earl Haig family. Your input matters and can affect real change for our school community as we work with the administration and teacher representatives to discuss issues like facilities, student concerns, special events, and equity issues.

Our first meeting of the school year will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, September 29th from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Please join us!

Become a member of the 2021/2022 Earl Haig School Advisory Council

You don’t need to be on the Council to attend meetings: everyone is welcome! However, Council does require some executive roles to be filled every school year and those roles are always chosen at the September meeting.

You can read more about our elected council roles here. Executives should plan to attend the majority of Council meetings. We meet most months (usually skipping December and March) alternating between Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

If you are interested in an elected role or would like to nominate someone else, please submit a nomination form by end of day Monday, September 27th and tune into our meeting on Wednesday!

If you have any questions about council please send us an email.
