GOOD SCHOOLS BECOME EVEN BETTER SCHOOLS WHEN PARENTS ARE INVOLVED!
Study after study has shown that parental involvement in schools makes a difference. Student achievement improves when parents play an active role in their children’s education.
School Council provides an opportunity for parents to stay connected and informed about school activities. It is a safe place to exchange ideas, to discuss issues, and to provide input into some key planning items that affect our students. CCI Administration consults the School Council when making student improvement plans. Please note that the CCI School Council is not a fund-raising committee.
All parents are welcome to attend Council meetings held from 6:30 – 8:00 pm in room 123. We hope you will consider joining your fellow parents, your Principal, a Teacher representative as well as CCI Student Leaders at the next School Council meeting.
If you are unable to attend meetings, but would like to be informed and have an opportunity to provide input on issues, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to have your email address added to the distribution list. We look forward to meeting you!
Support for school councils is provided by the Simcoe County District School Board’s Parent Involvement Committee.
