Home and School – Executive Committee and Next Meeting

Thanks to all who came out for the September Home and School meeting. It was nice to see so many new faces. Your new executive council is:

Chair: Michelle McBride
Vice Chair: vacant
Treasurer:
Dorothy Chen
Ward 7 Reps: Aileen MacDonald, John Doherty and Catherine Drillis
Secretary: Madeline Bentley

As you can see we are still looking for a co-chair or vice chair and we are looking for people to shadow the chair, and treasurer positions as both will be vacant next year. The co-chair position would involve attending the eight home and school meetings a year plus around 10 hours a month in crafting agendas, answering emails, overseeing the amazing projects our volunteers run, and coordinating with the school staff.

We also welcome Kathy Narraway as our athletics council chair, Aileen MacDonald as our technological council chair and Lara Pocock as our arts council chair.

October 22nd is our budget meeting. The budget meeting is where we decide where to spend our fundraising dollars. We will have draft budget out within a few weeks so please submit any funding requests to Michelle at mcbride.mclennan@gmail.com by October 8. We hope to see you all at the meeting.
