The Emerson Advisory Council is dedicated to the education and the well-being of the students. The EAC’s primary mandate is to promote effective communication between the home and school. The EAC shall encourage parents to participate in meaningful educational activities and decision-making to strengthen the role of families in education and to foster meaningful parent participation.
Our parent advisory council is an active, committed group of individuals whose purpose is to foster the well-being and effectiveness of our school community and enhance student learning. Our membership is open to all parents, as well as residents in the catchment area who are interested in the education and well-being of students.
We provide feedback on issues of importance such as school philosophy, mission and vision, school policies, programs, and direction. We also organize special events that benefit our school and community. New members are always welcome. If you would like more information or are interested in getting involved, please call 204-669-4430.
Emerson encourages parents to be involved as volunteers in the school. Staff and students value your assistance. In keeping with divisional policy, all volunteers are required to complete a Child Abuse Registry check and sign a pledge of confidentiality. Volunteers are asked to sign in and out at the office and to wear a volunteer lanyard while helping at the school. The lanyard will help the students to identify who the volunteer is in the school and on the playground. A volunteer orientation will be held annually at the school to welcome our volunteers and to review guidelines and suggestions for making the volunteer experience one that is fulfilling and rewarding.
