(everyone over 40, please read the blog post title in your best Alice Cooper voice, under 40s, we can’t explain, it’s in our DNA)
All of us here on the Earl Haig School Council would like to say a big thank you to all the parents who took part in council activities throughout the year be it through donated time or donated dollars. Thanks to your efforts and participation we were able to raise over $14,000 for future initiatives at Earl Haig. Have a suggestion of how we should be spending these raised funds in 2016/17? Got a great new idea to increase school spirit? We would love your input! Please consider joining us on the council next year.
School Council: Everyone is welcome to join the Earl Haig School Council. School Councils provide a place where parents can raise and solve school-wide issues and contribute as partners in their children’s education. Council meetings are open to the Earl Haig community. Meetings are once a month alternating between Tuesday & Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30pm. Free child care is provided.
There are a number of defined Executive Roles on the council which you can learn more about by visiting our blog at School Council. Beyond the Executive Council Roles, we are always in need of Members-At-Large and dedicated parent volunteers who can provide support in a variety of ways, including snack/lunch program volunteers, technology committee volunteers, and much more! Please think about your interests and time availability, and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss ways you can help. We have lots of ideas for ways parents can be involved at Earl Haig!
The first School Council Meeting of the 2016-2017 academic year will be held on Tuesday, September 27th from 7:00 – 8:30pm.
Me to We Dance: A fundraiser for the people of Fort McMurray will be held Friday June 24 throughout the day – please send along a toonie with your student.
We wish everyone a great summer!!
