School Council



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 virtually via Google Meet or in our SOAR Centre.  School Council Meetings are scheduled for September 28th, October 19th, November 23rd, January 25th, February 15th, March 15th, April 26th and May 3rd. There are usually no meetings held in December or June to help accommodate families with their busy schedules during these busy months.
