Menno Simons Christian School Council

The Menno Simons School Council consists of parents, our principal, teachers and interested community representatives who work together to support and enhance student learning.  They provide a way for members of the community to consult with and offer advice to the principal and the Palliser School Board.  Our School Council aims to:

  • Focus on what is best for all students in the school
  • Consider the interests of all school stakeholders
  • Develop, maintain and reflect the culture of the school
  • Represent the parent voice in the school community

Parents play an important role in student success. Our School Council allows parents to participate in decisions that impact student learning. By contributing knowledge, perspective and ideas at our monthly School Council meetings, parents are actively contributing to the success of our school community.

Our School Council is composed of one representative per grade and a School Council Chair. Our Council helps to facilitate our close community by hosting Muffin Mornings, Teas for Two, Family events and other special events as needed.  We are a conduit of information between the classroom teacher and our parents and facilitate that communication on an as need basis.  

We are actively seeking a secretary to record minutes of our monthly meetings, which are held in the Library.  All are welcome to attend.
