School Council

We believe the students are most likely to be successful learners when all the concerned participants of our school community (parents, teachers, school and district administration, staff and interested persons in the community at large) work together to support, enable, enhance and promote the effectiveness of our school.

What is School Council?

Established in 1995 under the School Act, Alberta Education defines school councils as “a collective association of parents, secondary students, principal, teachers, and community representative(s) whose purpose is to advise the principal and the Board of Trustees respecting matters related to the school.“

School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority defined within the School Act and the School Councils Regulation 113/2007.

What is the Fundraising Society?

A necessary separate entity from Council whose primary responsibility is to raise funds to support the school and school council goals.

Fundraising Initiatives

DMG HOT LUNCH PROGRAM

This is a popular and successful program which gives a break from lunch making duties a few days each week, while raising enough money to support school programs.

This program relies on volunteers to receive, cook (hotdog days), and distribute the lunches.

 

PLAYGROUND FUNDRAISERS

A number of sales and event type fundraisers will be announced shortly, all aimed at raising money for our inclusive playground upgrades.
