mandate is primarily to advise the Principal (or Board/Ministry) on school issues;
i.e. Code of Behaviour and School Success Plan. Another function is to conduct
activities that support our students;
initiative and fundraising. Fundraising allows us to offer support for
equipment and activities that are otherwise not allocated through Board
funding. Lastly, volunteering remains a cornerstone of the Council. If you are
able to help the school, please contact the Chair, Mrs. Sharon Lennie at
On October 31st
we will host our annual, fall fundraiser, the 3rd annual
Dance-a-Thon. As well, at 1:00 p.m. our children will be out in costume for the community parade (weather
permitting.) Come out and support our children.
Santa Claus Parade
Santa Claus parade will take place on November 19th. Preparations
are under way for Parkway's fifth appearance, pending details to be
finalized. The parade will commence at 5:00 p.m. and proceed south on Main Street through downtown
Brampton. Our third year
entry was awarded the best school float. Further information will be sent
home as it becomes available.
We remind parents
to read the monthly newsletters sent home and to return the tear-off. Once
again, children who return the completed tear-off, will be eligible for
fabulous prizes, including prizes, gift certificates and tickets to major events.
Send Hope to Hurricane Victims
In our last meeting of September 28th, the
Council decided to lend support by dedicating proceeds from one of our Pizza or
Sub days to the Canadian Red Cross for victims of Katrina.
