About SES Council

The Stonecrest Elementary School Council highly values and benefits from the contributions of our school families. Increased parental involvement leads to higher student achievement and attendance, improved student behaviour, improved school climate and a better relationship between home and school.

The SES Council is group of individuals made up of Stonecrest parents, guardians and school staff.  This dynamic group strives to:

  • serve as an advisory body which builds relationships between school and  community by sharing information
  • run programs helpful to parents and to support the community, such as the daily Milk Program, the weekly Hot Lunch program, the canteens at sporting events hosted by the school, the Family Dance, and the Summer Send Off
  • raise money to purchase items for the school that the school board cannot typically fund

 

Council meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month in the Stonecrest Resource Room between 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm.  The meetings are open to all Stonecrest parents and guardians, whether you are on the council or not. All parents and guardians are encouraged to attend to hear what is happening at the school, ask questions or raise issues.

The agenda for each council meeting typically consists of reports given by school staff and council members, discussions about upcoming events and fundraising activities and discussion of any issues that could potentially impact our children at school.

Membership on Council is open to any Stonecrest parent or guardian. If you are interested, or want to know more about SES Council please send an email to chair@stonecrest-council.ca.
