School Council is your pathway to greater involvement in your child’s school, 2016-2017

jfss council and school logo 2getherAll are welcome to the John Fraser Secondary School Council
meetings which are held at least four times a year.
Your School Council acts as an advisory group for the school administration, allows parents/guardians to learn more about school activities and achievements, and to ask questions of the principal or other presenters.
The School Council is also your conduit to help the school. The
Council routinely asks for volunteers to run special speaker events, complete the annual consultation, supervise students during school-grounds beautification projects, supervise Advanced Placement assessments, and assist English Language Learners. You are also invited to participate in the Erin Mills Connects community organization, a collaborative of area schools, youth and settlement agencies, working for the well-being of our children and youth.
Elections for the Council executive are also held at the first meeting
of the school year, and new leadership is always appreciated.
2016-2017 School Council Meetings are held from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the school. Meetings are scheduled for:
  • Thurs., Sept. 15, 2016
