The School Council is looking for one parent representative to join our other

representatives Nicole Pisciotta, Lisa McManus, and a teacher rep. TBD. The
school council provides a great opportunity for community partners, parents,
teachers, and principals to come together both to share ideas and resources and to
shape the direction our schools will take to strengthen teaching and learning.
