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. The members of St. Thomas More School Council works together with the administration and staff as a partnership to improve the educational experience of its students. We need your help coming up with new ideas as well as supporting the various activities and events already in place.
The School Council at St. Thomas More School has been instrumental in the area of fundraising, hosting and sponsoring lunch events and student activities. The lunches and family events hosted by School Council have added greatly to promoting spirit and enthusiasm around our school and providing opportunities for students they otherwise might not be able to enjoy!
All parents are members at large and are cordially invited to school council meetings. We cannot do it without you! We have monthly meetings on every third Tuesday at 4:30pm.
