News from Your ADHS School Council!
Have you ever considered being on School Council?
“Parental involvement is one of the most significant factors contributing to a child’s success in school. When parents are involved in their children’s education, the level of student achievement increases. Students attend school more regularly, they complete more homework in a consistent manner, and demonstrate more positive attitudes towards school. They are more likely to complete high school.
Membership on a school council also benefits the individuals involved. The personal advantages of becoming a school council member include:
· Being an important partner in the education system, whose views are valued;
· Contributing to the shared goal of improving student achievement
· Having a vehicle through which to express opinions;
· Being able to keep informed about what is happening at the school and the board, and at the provincial level of education
Participating on the school council will be a rewarding experience for all those who value the opportunity to make a difference in their children’s education.”(School Councils, A Guide for Members)
For more information, please contact the school Principal, Ms N. Holman, or our School Chair, Mrs. S. Norman.
School Council meetings will be held on the first Monday of each month in the school mezzaine from 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend!
