Parent Council

All parents are invited to attend parent council meetings at Sherwood Heights. Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 21 at 7:00 pm in our school library. 

We do not have a fundraising society, as we focus on discussion topics and communication. Some examples of topics that can be discussed are:

  • Junior High Report Cards
  • Feedback on administrative procedures
  • Healthy Schools Initiative
  • Digital Citizenship
  • Math curriculum

We would like to build an active school council, that can support the school in our many initiatives and the school education plan. How do we want to build our school community, and create parent engagement? We are looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting.

Please make note of our Parent Council Meeting dates (all at 7:00 pm in the Sherwood Heights Library):

March 21

May 30

We look forward to seeing you there!
