Please find minutes for the most recent Essex School Council meeting below. Click on image to download the full document (PDF).October 12 Agenda_Minutes
My name is Melissa and I am the School Council Chair at Essex. I wanted to take a few minutes to say welcome back to our returning families – and big first time hello to all of you joining Essex for the first time this year!
The Essex School Council is a community of parents/guardians who volunteer their time to support the school. (More on how to join below!) We focus on supporting the students/staff/teachers/admin by raising money for projects, events, and improvements. We also serve as a community that supports the families and students in the school in a variety of ways, providing bursaries, helping problem solve, and advocating. And – fingers crossed – we also hope that this year we can get back to running fun community events to build school spirit!
The School Council meets every other month for two hours. There are some “official” responsibilities we cover, we hear a principal/vp report, and then we discuss various projects or initiatives. If you would like to learn more about school council – or join our next meeting on Dec 7th you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can receive updates and announcements by signing up for the Essex School Council Blog updates.
Here’s to the start of a new school year!
Melissa Graham Burke
Chair of School Council
