The purpose of school councils is that of an advisory body that functions within the parameters of Ministry and Board Policy.  The council works with the principal and the Board to improve pupil achievement and the council works in partnership with the educational stakeholders.

The School Council meets monthly on the second Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm.  This school year, meetings are virtual, and a link to attend is sent to all members.  If you wish to “attend” these virtual meetings, please email the school principal, Krista Mohr Beamish.

All parents and guardians are invited to attend the school council’s monthly meetings.  We encourage all long-time, and brand new Empire families to attend these useful meeting.  The meetings are typically 1-2 hours.

You do not have to be an official member to attend but official members may vote on issues.  Benefits of attending include building community through planning school council events and projects.  Be part of the planning and learn about other activities first at these meetings.
