WHY JOIN SCHOOL COUNCIL?
School Council is a great way to get to know the principal, some staff members, and other parents. Discussion relates to upcoming events at Preston, updates from Waterloo Regional Assembly of School Councils, parent nights, report card information, course selection, and much more. Find out how busy life at Preston is for staff and students. It’s interesting to find out the “why” behind scheduling and events from a whole school picture rather than just your child’s view.
School Council at Preston is a very casual and non-threatening way to stay informed and ask questions about your community high school and to share your ideas. PHS School Council does not fundraise.
All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend!
GET MORE INFORMATION
If you are interested in attending any school council meeting please keep up to date with announcements on School-day and on the PHS website. A google form will be sent out to all parents at the start of the school year. When completed, that form will allow us to add you to the School Council Email Group and also allow you to receive all relevant information.
