School Council


Why parents join the council or volunteer?
   Every school in Ontario has a Parent council as required by the Ministry of Education.  It is made up of parents, school board designates (principal, VP, teacher & Staff representative) and a community member. The council acts as a link between the school, the Limestone District School Board (LDSB) and collaborates with the school staff to improve student achievement and enhance the educational experience for all.
 Our key mission is to promote an environment at our school that enables our teachers and administrators to do their best work and empower our children to do their best learning.
 Granite Ridge Education Centre (GREC) Parent Council has a place for everyone who wants to be involved in their child's education.  You can do something as simple as spend an hour per month attending council meetings, try a leadership or coordinator/committee role, volunteer in a classroom/library or try a smaller volunteer role like copying flyers/newsletters or sharing ideas throughout the school year.  There is truly some thing for everyone.  See the Parent Council Volunteer section attached or contact our volunteer Coordinator to find out more. Every parent counts!  We need you! 
  The Election for the 2021/2022 council will be held on Monday September 20th at 6:00 pm at the Sharbot Lake Public Beach pavillion.  A Parent Council Opportunities Form with all the positions can be found attached. Please fill out the form and return it to the school and be sure to attend the election meeting.  We are always looking for new parents and ideas, so please join us!  We are looking forward to working with you!
