About Us


  • School Council is a great way to be part of decisions that directly affect your child(ren)’s school experience. 
  • We’re all volunteers – parents, guardians, and teachers. The most important thing to know is that we invite everyone to participate. 
  • At our meetings, you have a chance to connect directly with the Principal, Vice Principal, and Teacher Representative.
  • At each meeting Council receives a staff report/update on school announcements, activities, challenges, goals, etc. and we have an opportunity to discuss as a group.
  • Whether you can volunteer for just an hour for a single activity or wish to participate at Council meetings, we're happy to include everyone.
  • Please consider joining our "Friends Of Council" mailing list to stay in touch and learn more. Email us anytime at SC-LePhareES@ocdsb.ca

How you can fit in:

  • Parent Volunteer: Sometimes attend Council meetings and encouraged to voice an opinion but will not have the ability to vote on Council motions. This role is good for someone who wants to participate but who cannot commit to regularly attend meetings. Will also volunteer with Council events.
  • Activities Helper:  Cannot attend meetings but will volunteer as needed for Council activities. E.g. setting up tables, baking, selling tickets/food/beverages at a booth, creating flyers, setting up/tear down crew.
  • Council Member: Regularly attends Council meetings (two hours per month, usually the 3rd Tuesday, 7:00-9:00 pm in the school library – only 9 meetings/school year!).  Members contribute to Council debates and executing Council priorities. Members can vote on Council motions, such as how money is spent. Will also volunteer with Council events.
  • Council Executive:  This is a Council member who wants the additional responsibility of running the Council itself.  The positions are two co-chairs, one treasurer, and one secretary. (Prerequisite is that you must have been a Council member the previous year.)
