About Us

The W. Erskine Johnston School Council is led by parent volunteers.  Each year in September a new Council Executive is elected by the parent body.  At Council meetings, every parent is invited to attend, has a voice and a vote.  School Council meetings occur once a month in the school library during the school year.  All parents and guardians are welcome and encouraged to come to School Council meetings whenever possible.   Strong parent involvement makes for stronger schools.
