The École Christine Morrison Advisory Council performs a wide variety of functions for the benefit of our students. The council also provides a forum for communication between the home and the school so that parents and educators work as partners in the education of our students. All parents and guardians of children attending École Christine Morrison are members of the council.
General membership meetings are usually held once a month. Read the calendar and school newsletters for the dates. These monthly meetings provide a forum for discussion of educational policies and issues, programs and school events; an opportunity to hear items and presentations of interest; and, a time and place to meet with other parents who share common goals.
The Executive PAC members meet one additional time each month. This hard-working and enthusiastic group is responsible for many of the “funtastic” activities we have enjoyed in our school history, e.g. craft fair, winter carnival, hot lunches, and much, much more! Please consider joining our PAC. For the latest news from our PAC click on the link in the right hand column. Links to email members are listed below.

At the beginning of the school year we send a Parent Handbook home to all families in our school. This handbook is intended to be a useful reference for families for the duration of the school year. The handbook contains essentially the same information as our website, including sections on our mission statement, annual report to families, calendar, school hours, and STAR behaviour, Parents are asked to review the entire handbook and to pay special attention to the STAR code of conduct section. If you did not receive a copy of this year’s Parent Handbook, please contact the school office.
This policy has been developed in consultation with school staff, Parent Advisory Council and the School Planning Council.
