School Council


On behalf of John G’s School Council, we welcome all our new and returning students and families!

We are excited for this new school year ahead and are looking forward to continuing to support our school through active parent engagement. Getting involved in our School Council is a great way to be involved with your child’s school and education. We invite you to come out and be part of our council of parents, caregivers, and school staff! You will hear reports from our Chairs, Principal, teacher reps, and more. Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings and if you are considering becoming a voting or executive member of the council be sure to fill out the nomination form.

Please check the JGA Google Calendar for School Council meeting dates.
