School councils play a vital role in the education system in Ontario.   They provide a forum through which parents and other members of school communities can contribute to improving student achievement and school performance.

The Education Improvement Commission (EIC) describes the results of research on parental involvement this way:

Parental involvement is one of the most significant factors contributing to a child's success in school. When parents are involved in their children's education, the level of student achievement increases.  Students attend school more regularly, they complete more homework in a consistent manner, and demonstrate more positive attitudes towards school

(Source:  School Improvement Planning:  A Handbook for Principals, Teachers and School Councils - Nov. 2000)


The parent council at Armour Heights P.S. is called the Family and School Assocation (herein "FSA").  The FSA is administered by a volunteer Executive appointed each year by the families at Armour Heights P.S.  The FSA's objectives are as follows.

To Create a First Class Learning Experience
To Support a Safe and Friendly Environment for all Armour Children
To Create a Unique and Exceptional experience for Armour Families
To Take Care of our Own and Give back to Others

All parents of current Armour Heights students are automatically members of the FSA.  Parents are encouraged to attend all meetings and become involved in decisions affecting school life.  It is an excellent forum for communications with other parents, the Principal as well as teacher representatives.  .

Our first meeting of 2019 is Tuesday, October 15th at 7:30pm. The meeting is located in our schools Staffroom in the main hall.
