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.

Soul Food at SMG
The Soul Food program is supported and run through the SMG school council. The purpose of the program is to assist families in our school community that are going through a difficult time because of an illness in the family, a death or perhaps a period of financial hardship or because of a new addition to the family. The assistance we provide is in the form of meals and prayer. All assistance is offered confidentially. The coordinators for the 2017 – 2018 school year are Jennifer Vass and Anne Moran.
Do you know a family who would benefit from Soul Food?
A family in need may be identified by any member of our school community or a staff member. Please contact the coordinators at St. Maria Goretti Soul Food
Anyone can volunteer to be a part of this wonderful service and be part of our Catholic Community of Caring. If you would like to volunteer to provide meals for those in need please contact the coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you for your support.
