What is School Council?

School Council is a collaborative and co-operative partnership comprised of volunteer parents, school staff, and members of the community whose mission is to enrich the learning and school environment for students at Ross Doan PS.   

What does a School Council do?

Our School Council does a variety of things to achieve its mission to support student learning and the school culture. Our school council aims to be involved in:

-parent/community engagement activities/information

-consulting the school admistration on decision making

-volunteering at events and in the school

-suporting the school improvement plan (Math, Wellness, Equity/Indigenous Education)

-fundraising to enhance student learning

Who can be part of School Council?

Members of School Council are elected at the beginning of every school year. Any parent who has a child attending Ross Doan PS can participate in the election process and all parents are invited to attend School Council meetings.

Why does a School Council Fundraise?

While the school is responsible for providing basic materials and equipment for student learning, there are budgetary limitations and school board restrictions as to what the school can buy that is over and above defined basic needs.  School Council fundraising initiatives assist the learning environment and opportunities for students.  

What is the School Council's Fundraising Plan for the year?

The School Council's main objective is to support the following for students 1.A school wide Arts Performance Package, 2. Technology, 3. Kindergarten recess equipment

The School Council will also be supporting student learning by helping fund K-3 initiatives/programs such as:

-Math IXL program, RAZ kids and Starfall reading programs, Scientist in the School program, Lice Checks, and an individual classroom monetary gift

-Our goal is to raise $15,000.00 to enhance the learning for all students in various ways

How can I help?

Every time you take part in a school council activity (such as a Move-a-thon, Funscrip, Direct Donation, pizza lunches, etc) you help to raise money to improve our children’s learning environment.

In addition you can volunteer to assist with School Counil activities. Any help, big or small ,is always appreciated.​
