School Council Chair "Welcome to Heart Lake Secondary School":
"Hello and Welcome" to all current and future students’ parents, guardians, family, and supportive friends.
My name is Elaine Marsha Peters.
I am the elected Heart Lake Secondary School Council Chair for the current 2012-2013 school year.
The objectives of the Heart Lake Secondary School Council are to help support and enhance the learning environment for all students by:
Enhancing the lines of communication among parents and/or guardians, administrators, teachers, and students in the school community.
Providing a forum for input into educational matters for all parents and guardians of HLSS students.
Providing a means for expressing parental and guardian ideas, recommendations and concerns to HLSS administrators or to the Peel Board itself.
Encouraging and promoting school-based services and community partnerships related to social, health, safety, recreation, and nutritional programs.
Assisting in the building of an inclusive community working together in the interest of Public Education.
In short, the Heart Lake Secondary School Council is here to:
Help you voice your concerns about your teenagers’ education;
Help you find solutions to those concerns;
Help inform you about school initiatives designed to improve your teenagers’ academic achievement and engagement in school life.
Our council meetings are normally on the third Wednesday of each month during the school year with the exception of December, March, and June. Meetings dates are as follows: October 17, November 21, January 16 (2013), February 20, April 17, and May 15.
All Council Meetings commence at 7:00 p.m. in the Heart Lake Secondary School Library, adjourning at 8:30 p.m.
On behalf of Heart Lake Secondary School, I invite our current and future students’ parents/guardians to come out to at least one Council meeting just to see what we’re all about. Find out how together we can accomplish an engaging educational experience for the benefit of our teenagers’ future.
