SCHOOL COUNCIL 2022-2023

School Council is an excellent way to become involved in the life of the school. Everyone is welcome and your input is valued. We hope that you will take this opportunity to stay informed, provide input and get to know other parents. Please watch the newsletter for communications from the council. All parents are always welcome to all council meetings. Attending council meetings gives you great insight into what goes into making Neil M Ross such a special place. Please attend if you can, we’d love to see you there!  

Meetings start at 7:00 p.m. and are held in the SOAR Centre. Parents can also use the virtual meeting link if they are unable to attend in-person! School Council Meeting dates for 2022-2023 are scheduled for September 20th, October 25th, November 22nd, January 24th, February 14th, March 14th, April 25th and May 30th. There are usually no meetings held in December or June to help accommodate families with their busy schedules during these months.
