Our council consist of a friendly group of parents, supported by staff and students of MHS, committed to enhancing our children's secondary school experience. Aside from the principal & teacher reports, we also keep abreast of all the clubs, teams, events and programming happenings within the school. OCDSB &/or trustee updates, department presentations, discussion topics and special interest items are routinely added to the agenda throughout the year.

Please submit any upcoming agendas requests by the Friday prior to the meeting date and to school council chair email address above.

If you have an interest in school council but are not able to attend meetings, we'd be most happy to add your email to our members list. You will receive a weekly email with the OCDSB newsletter and meeting reminders with the upcoming agenda as well as our minutes from the prior meeting. Please contact either Lorrie or Marie with your contact information.

Everyone is welcome!
