Dream it. Believe it. Achieve it!
Jennie Elliott is a wonderful school. While there are many things that go in to the making of a great school, one thing that we can attest to is the dedication of the parent community at Jennie Elliott. Jennie Elliott is comprised of very hard-working, caring, committed parents who take a very active, engaged approach to their children's day to day lives at school. These are parents who devote hundreds of volunteer hours per year organizing special school spirit events such as picnics and dances, fundraising thousands of dollars in order to purchase technology, music, art and gym equipment as well as providing special in-school residencies, helping out in classroom reading groups and volunteering for off-site and in-school field trips, updating school billboards, coordinating Fun Lunches and casino fundraisers, organizing Home Reading books and participating in so many more activities, roles and events. This kind of dedicated parent participation significantly improves and enhances the quality of our children's experience at school every day and further serves to role model care and commitment to others and our community. We are very grateful to the parents and caregivers in the Jennie Elliott community for contributing so immensely toward making Jennie Elliott such a great place for our children to learn, in turn supporting our children to become the caring, committed leaders and adults of tomorrow.

One of our strengths as a school is the relationships we have with our families. Another round of parent/teacher/student conferences just wound up and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. During that time the Gr. 6 students, supported by parents, ran a fabulous bake sale. The week before that was the parent run (Joanne C.) perogy/sausage fundraiser as well as our monthly school council meeting. Parents volunteer in classrooms, go on field trips and support us in myriad other ways. We do have one area of need that requires highlighting.
School council is parents, administration and teachers working together to enhance student learning. In order for council to have optimal impact all of the council positions need to be filled and meetings need to be well attended. At this time, we have several positions that need to be filled including Fun Lunch Coordinator(s), September/June Picnic Coordinator(s), Family Dance Coordinator(s), Supplemental Snack Program Coordinator(s) and Parent Education Coordinator(s). If you can help out please send me an email and I will forward it to Kathryn and Sarah, our council chairs. You are invited to the next meeting on April 24 at 7:00 p.m. in the library. All of our wonderful volunteers are invited to the Volunteer Tea on May 12.
Every few years we reassess our service providers. If you are interested in being involved with selecting the photographer for 2017/2018 school year please contact Sarah at email@example.com.
