ELJHSPA and School Council AGM

ELJHSPA September 2018

ÉCOLE LEDUC JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION & COUNCIL

MEETING SCHEDULE:

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING: Thursday, September 6th @ 6 pm

We meet every six weeks, rather than monthly. Please join us in the staff room. We will determine the schedule for the year at the AGM to make it easier for scheduling.

WHAT DO WE DO?

The Parent Council liaises with school administration regarding all aspects of our students’ educational experience at ELJHS. We are consulted on newly developed programs and our ideas help shape direction within the school.

The Parents’ Association is the fundraising arm of our Council. We are incorporated under the Societies Act and can participate in AGLC activities, such as casinos and raffles. WE DO NOT DO BINGOS.

The Parents’ Association uses events such as our annual Dodgeball Tournament, Mental Health Week BBQs and West Edmonton Mall Waterpark pass fundraisers to help pay for the awards recognizing student excellence in academics, athletics and arts. We also use our funds to operate the school owned bus and we are hoping to fund the purchase of a replacement bus in the future. In the past, we have helped fund the gym renovations and facilitated grant applications on behalf of the school.

We also enjoy organizing staff appreciation events and participate in open houses at the school.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

– Margaret Mead

CAN’T MAKE THE MEETNGS, BUT STILL WANT TO HELP?

We have a Fundraising Committee that organizes the Mental Health Week BBQs and we have a Dodgeball Tournament Committee to organize our event. These committees meet outside of our regular meetings in a casual environment to plan their events.
