Parent Advisory Council

The École Sun Valley School parent advisory council is a group of parents who work together with the school staff to enhance and promote the exceptional learning environment at École Sun Valley School. The council is comprised of a chair, vice-chair, secretary, treasurer, and committee co-ordinators. The executive is elected in October of the new school year.

Membership is open to all community members and parents/guardians of children enrolled at École Sun Valley School. The council's activities are always changing. As a result, they are receptive to the creative ideas of new members.
