School Council members organize many fundraising activities throughout the school year and offer volunteer support for any and all activities as needed by the school and staff.
“The Grandview School Council will work collaboratively to enhance the educational experience of all students by providing an accessible & welcoming forum. We will seek advice, share information, identify, & discuss issues that affect the school community. The Council will promote & encourage communication between home, school and community to enable families to actively share responsibility for their children’s education.”
The Role & Functions of the School Council
The School Council is an advisory body of volunteers who work together to provide ideas and opinions to help the principal and sometimes the school board make the school a better place for learning. The School Council should represent the diversity of the school community, which includes the parents and guardians of the children in the school and other people who live or work in the school’s attendance area. It gives the community opportunities to discuss educational issues and respond to local educational needs by providing information for parents and community members, getting feedback from them, and presenting their views to the school and school board. In its role as a link between the school and the community, the School Council has two very important functions:
- To establish and maintain good communication among the school, parents and community.
- To encourage parents and community members to participate in education.
2016-2017 was an awesome year! We achieved so much! We were able to meet our goals of purchasing books for the home reading program and classrooms, outdoor classroom toys, classroom sensory items and brought in Scientist in the School to the classes as well as sponsored end year class trips! With a combined effort, we can accomplish so much for our students and within the school.
Grandview School Council would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents, students and staff of Grandview for such a great year! Without your help and support we would not be able to accomplish our goals in the school. We truly appreciate everything that you do! You make Grandview a great place to go to school.
We are looking for new members to join our School Council in September 2017. Please contact current council members or the school office if you are interested in joining. Our new School Council members will be voted in during our first meeting in September.
