Our School Council is comprised of parents, community members and staff members. The group meets every third Wednesday (for 2018-2019) of each month. Everyone is welcome to attend the meetings to learn about what is happening at Preston Public!
The volunteers from our council organize and run many exciting events throughout the school year. We provide community building events like meet the teacher BBQs, swim and games nights and movie mornings. Our various fundraisers provide valued enhancements like Home Reading, Chess instruction, field trips, and playground equipment. Thanks to our active fundraising we have data projectors and document cameras in every room along with many iPad and Chromebook handheld devices.
We have also hosted community information nights on topics like Cyber-bullying.
Our school grounds have been enhanced with the greening work that our school council supports.
In addition to all of the enhancements we provide is the feedback we provide to the school and school board on the learning environment at Preston PS. Learning about current trends in education, special initiatives by the board and ministry and best instructional practices is also part of our monthly meetings. We have also supported curriculum nights to build the connection between home and school.
We hope that you will be part of the exciting work we do to support a positive and supportive learning environment at Preston PS.
