Good Morning Hawks,

And, on behalf of School Council:


We hope you have a safe and happy summer. The Monsignor Haller School Council had a very rewarding 2017-2018 year.

The school council held 4 meetings in September, November, January and April and worked on various school related initiatives during the school year including fundraising, gardening discussions and building together items for classroom prayer tables.

These meetings were open to the public to encourage input from parents and other members of the school community to inform our discussions of the various issues considered. The purpose of the school council is to improve pupil achievement and to enhance the accountability of the education system to parents, through the active participation of parents. School councils are advisory organizations. A school council’s primary means of achieving its purpose is by making recommendations to the principal of the school and the school board. Boards and principals are responsible to consider recommendations made by each school council and advise the council (s) of the actions taken in response to the recommendations

Additional achievements of the school council as well as fund-raising activities were conducted and the proceeds were used to fund projects in accordance with school board policies. These fund – raising activities have been communicated to the school community over the course of the year (School Calendar and Vesey Bulbs/Pepperettes) and is summarized in the financial summary. A summary of financial activity related to school council’s administrative and minutes of meetings held and financial records are available for public inspection at the school office. We wish to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the many individuals who volunteered their time to contribute to the success of the school council last year.

Finally, we would like to wish the best of luck to candidates in the September school council elections.


Olivia Holmes and Sherri McCulligh
