As the school year is winding down, it is a great time to think about how your support your child and make a difference in your child’s education next year! Below are the School Council opportunities for the 2014-15 school year.

Duties include: working with the principal to adopt goals for the school, identify educational needs for the student body, review the school’s budget, and formulate a school improvement plan. Each School Council includes a parent and teacher from each grade level and a community representative who does not have a child at the school. The term is two years unless otherwise noted. The dates and times of the meetings are set by the principal. For more information, please see the HPTA website.
