Dear Parents,

Did you know that as a parent of a student at Crescent Heights High School, you are a CHHS School Council member?  Regular meetings of the CHHS School Council are held the last Monday of the month at 6:30 pm in the Library.  It’s a great way to find out what’s going on in the school and to support your child’s educational experience.

The Annual General Meeting of the CHHS School Council will be on September 28, at 6:30 pm.  This meeting will be conducted via ZOOM. The ZOOM link will be sent out vie school messenger on the day of the AGM.  The main purpose of the AGM will be to elect our executive and discuss our goals and plans for the 2020-2021 school year.   Our council executive consists of five positions: Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Wellness Champion, and Member at Large.  All parents are welcome to contribute.

If you have never attended, you may be wondering what school councils do.  The ASCA website states that school councils are “structured groups of parents, principals, teachers, secondary students, and community representatives who work together to effectively support and enhance student learning. They provide a method for members of the school community to consult with and offer advice to the principal and the school board.”  An effective school council will:

  • focus on what is best for all students in the school
  • consider the interests of all school stakeholders
  • develop, maintain and reflect the culture of the school 
  • represent the parent voice in the school community 

More information about Crescent Height School Council can be found on the CHHS website under the “For Parents” tab.  One goal for this year will be to post all meeting agendas and minutes on this site. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school at chhs@sd76.ab.ca or (403) 527-6641.
