School Council Members
We will be hosting our next School Council meeting on Wednesday, November 18th, 2020, at 7:00 pm. This meeting will be a ‘virtual’ meeting through “Microsoft Teams” and is open to all parents and guardians of Monsignor J.J. O’Brien School. The agenda and a link to join the meeting will be sent out on Monday, November 16th, through ‘School Connects’. This is a new format due to the Covid-19 pandemic but none the less; we are looking forward to connecting with our school community. It is an excellent opportunity to get involved in the education of your child.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ School councils provide an opportunity for parents, school administration, teachers, community members and students to work together towards achieving a more vibrant and effective school community. All parents with children attending school are members of their local school council and are encouraged to participate in council activities. Councils usually meet on a monthly basis. In addition, school council chairs meet with one another, district administrators and members of the Board of Trustees at district-wide meetings.
School councils, working with their principals, create a community spirit that makes a school more than just a school. They create a learning environment where students feel the commitment of their principal, teachers and parents working toward a common goal: creating teaching and learning environments where students reach their potential and achieve at the highest levels in all areas of learning.
