We need you! Several Council roles are still open

Have you been looking for a way to get involved in your child’s school?

Lakeview School Council enriches the lives of students through special events, extra-curricular activities, and funding for school sports and academic programs. School Council also provides a forum for parents to share their opinions and make recommendations known to the school administration.

Meetings are the second Tuesday of each month at 6:45 in the school library.

We need people to help with the following roles:

Treasurer

The Treasurer ensures safekeeping of the School Council finances in accordance with the policies and procedures of the OCDSB and provides accounting thereof, as required, to the Board and the Council. The role of the Treasurer is to maintain a detailed record of all income and expenses along with accompanying receipts ad invoices; to check the accuracy and consistency of monthly bank statements; and to report monthly to School Council on fundraising and other revenues and expenditures. The Treasurer deposits all incoming cheques and signs all outgoing cheques. The Treasurer is a signing officer for the Council.

Fundraising Team

We have a Fundraising Lead but we are looking for more members to be part of a team to help generate and implement ideas on easy and fun ways to fundraise for our school.

Ottawa-Carleton Association of School Councils Representatives (OCASC)

The OCASC representatives represent School Council at OCASC meetings and raise issues on behalf of the School Council. They then report to School Council at each council meeting and keep School Council members up to date on pertinent issues. The OCASC meetings often feature a guest speaker who talks about issues affecting all schools in the Ottawa area, and allows the representatives from Lakeview to meet and interface with other schools in the area.

If you are interested in any of these roles, please contact the Council Chair at chair@lakeviewschoolcouncil.ca.
