Hola Parents and Guardians of the St. Margaret’s school community!
Welcome back! Hope you are all healthy and safe and that you had a lovely summer. Thank you for your contributions to our school community in 2019/2020 especially as we faced unprecedented times. School Council would not have been able to reach many of our objectives and goals last year without the help of the many parents and guardians who volunteered, fundraised and attended School Council meeting and events.
Our 2019/2020 School Council Executives and Committee Chairs are:
Chair: Chastine Taerum
Vice-chair: Jocelyn Boudreau
Treasurer: Lynn Mack
Secretary: Kim Lydiatt
Fundraising committee Chair: Tonia Wood
Parish Liaison Chair: Rachel MacGillivray
Volunteer Committee Chair: Kim Lydiatt
One of the roles of School Council is to communicate ideas between families and school administration for learning enhancements for our children. The School Council and the administration work together to develop a plan to support the learning experience of our students. There are many ways to provide School Council with your thoughts and ideas such as sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and by attending a School Council Meeting. School Council meetings are open to all parents and guardians of St. Margaret students. The School Council meeting dates are set out below. Meetings are from 6:15pm to 7:30pm and will be held via Zoom conference until further notice. Meeting details including the agenda, unapproved minutes of the prior School Council meeting and conference dial-in details will be circulated prior to the meeting date.

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.
