School Council and Parent Volunteers
The École Westhaven School Council is a fun group of volunteer parents who meet once a month from September to June. They work closely with the School and Community to organize and provide various programs and exciting events for students and families throughout the school year.
The School Council coordinates snack and hot lunch programs, playground maintenance, helps subsidize field trips and provides agendas for all students. We organize fundraisers such as Dieleman Fundraising and Gingerbread House and Gift Raffle at the Christmas Concert to help with these various programs and costs. There are a variety of events the School Council hosts for the students and parents such as Meet the Teacher, a Halloween Dance, Movie Night with Santa, Bonhomme Carnival Pancake Breakfast and a Pizza Day. The School Council relies on the volunteer efforts of its members as well as all of the wonderful families of our students in order to make these events and programs a great success.
The École Westhaven School Council would like to welcome any and all Parents to our monthly meetings. School council meetings are held the first Monday of each month at 7pm. Meetings are currently being held via Google Meets. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the meeting link.
School Council elections are held in June for the next year, please feel free to join us in an executive capacity by attending this meeting. If you have any questions, regarding anything the School Council does you can email us at email@example.com

A school council is a means for parents and community members to work together with the principal and the school to support and enhance student learning. Anyone (parent, guardian, grandparent, etc) that attends council meetings will be considered a part of the school council and will have a vote in decisions. Learn more about school council here.
