School Council

Council Description

The School Council Executive is comprised of parents, teachers, non-teaching staff, community members and the principal. The Council’s role is to provide an advisory forum to promote school growth, successful learning and increase parents/guardians’ participation in the education of their child.

There are four school council meetings per school year. All parents/ guardians of students attending North Star are encouraged to attend our School Council meetings. Meeting dates will be on the monthly school calendar or newsletter. Free child care is available. Call the school to let us know if you are interested!
