Parent Council/Friends of Jennie Emery Society AGM

Meeting Link:

AGM Agenda: Sept AGM Agenda

2019 AGM Minutes (to be approved) - JEES AGM Minutes Sep 12, 2019

Welcome Jennie Emery families to the 2020/2021 school year. We hope you have enjoyed your summer and are ready for a fresh start to the school year. We want to send a special welcome to the many new families that have joined our school this year. Even though things look and feel different this year, we hope that you are feeling welcomed and excited to be a part of this wonderful school community.

This year our Parent Council and Friends of Jennie Emery Society is looking for parent volunteers to help make up our council. The school council is a collective association of parents, teachers, school administration and trustees whose purpose is to advise the principal and board in matters relating to the school. We usually meet once a month. This being the year it is, right now we will be having our monthly meetings online through Google Meet. 

Volunteers are invaluable to the success of our school and our students. While we recognize the busy nature of all families, we hope parents and caregivers are able to volunteer in some capacity. There are many different volunteer opportunities that require different levels of involvement. This year we are looking for someone to fill in the following positions.

Chairperson: This is a three year term whose duties include: Calling regular school council meetings, preparing agendas for the meetings, communicating with the principal on a regular basis and ensuring there is regular communication with the school community. 

Secretary: Duties include recording the proceedings and decisions of school council meetings and post and distribute the minutes for council members and interested parents to review. 

ELP Rep: This position requires you to be the parent representative between the Early Learning Program families and council. 

Kindergarten Rep:.This position requires you to be the parent representative between the Kindergarten families and council. 

Parent Rep: This position requires you to be the representative between the elementary parents and council. 

Please join us online at the parent council meeting for our annual AGM on  Thursday, September 17 at 7:00 p.m.. Everyone is welcome. We hope to “see” you there.

Thank You,

Suzanna Neufeld

Parent Council Chairperson
