Upcoming Parent Council Meetings

posted Jan 25, 2019, 11:39 AM by Julie Kerr

The next St. John Paul II Parent Council meeting is scheduled for Monday, February 4, 2019 at 6:30 pm in the Learning Commons.  Come join us to find out what is happening in the school!  We’re always looking for parents to get involved and help out and it is also a great way to meet people.  Meetings are the first Monday of every month and are an hour long.  Parents can also be involved in parent council without attending the meetings.  Fundraising ideas and other initiatives are always welcome.

Fundraising this year

posted Nov 8, 2018, 8:48 AM by John Paul II School

This 2018-2019 year the School Council will have five different fundraising options for families to consider participating in, including
  • Sam and Mike Toy Sale (November)
  • Themed Raffle Baskets (November and June)
  • Little Caesar's frozen pizza kits (December and May)
  • FundScrip (ongoing throughout the year)
  • Mabel's Labels (ongoing throughout the year)
As always, there is no obligation to participate but having a greater variety of options benefits our children, because all money raised goes back to support the students and school.

Intro to Self-Regulation with Dr Stuart Shanker

Why are children and youth so overstressed today?  What is the nature of hidden stressors and the distinction between misbehaviour and stress behaviour?  Dr. Shanker will explain the 5 steps of self-regulation, not just in a way for parents to apply these with their children, but also for themselves.
