Parent participation matters!

What You Can Do:

YOU can participate!

Give a little, give a lot:

2 Hours

‐once a year:

attend the AGM (Annual General Meeting); support the school by contributing your thoughts about issues facing the school. Elect a parent Board to work with the staff and GSCS to give your children the education you want them to have. You do not have to be on the Board or a Society member to attend.


join a committee (such as Special Lunch, or Fundraising) or work on an event (like the Halloween Dance, or Teacher Appreciation); help our school be a community that cares.

‐when you wish:

attend the monthly FSS board meetings. All members are welcome to attend; you do not have to be on the Board to participate. See what is going on behind the scenes.

‐once a month:

become a Board Director; vote on the issues that affect our children.

‐monthly, and as needed:

run for Board Executive; volunteer a little extra time to keep the board running smoothly.

A little time goes a long way!
