Who We Are
The Steve MacLean Public School Council is an advisory body consisting of parents, teacher representatives, and staff of Steve MacLean Public School as well as members of the community that the school serves. The Council meets seven times a year on the fourth Wednesday of September, October, November, January, February, April, and May. Council meetings take place at 6:30 PM in the school library. Meetings are open to the public and present a great opportunity to learn about the challenges and successes of our school, while ensuring your voice is heard on matters under Council’s consideration.
The primary purpose of our Council is to advise the principal, Cheryl Sevigny, and liaise with our Vice Principals, Rosalie Cross and May Tannous, as part of the implementation and maintenance of the school’s action plan. Cheryl in conjunction with Rosalie and May, will provide a monthly report/update for each meeting. This team seeks the advice of Council on a variety of matters and takes recommendations of Council into consideration as part of the continuous management of the school.
Council also conducts fundraising activities, special events, and programs to encourage parent volunteerism, all in the interest of improving pupil achievement and maximizing the benefit that our kids will enjoy from their years at Steve MacLean Public School.
For the 2017-2018 school year, our initiatives include the pizza program, dances, school travel planning and our school partnership plan.
