School Council

At Senator Buchanan School, we believe that students, parents and staff share responsibility for learning. The role of the School Council is to strengthen and promote communication between the school and parents and the school and the community.

The School Council consists of parents, school administration, staff representatives, and a community member. Staff and parent representatives are elected each fall and generally meet on a monthly basis. The School Council members are involved in activities such as the Fall Barbecue, Special Lunch Days and Sports Activities. Throughout the year, they are involved in fundraising projects such as magazine and chocolate sales. Your support is greatly appreciated.

The School Council will:

  • work to increase parental involvement
  • provide opportunities for parent education
  • provide support and advice for the improvement of school programs
  • assist in the recognition and solution of matters of concern to the school community.

School council meetings are usually held on the third Monday of the month from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and take place in the school’s staff room. Please check the website calendar for monthly dates. Any parents are welcome to attend any or all of the meetings they wish.
