School Council

From your School Council Chair;

Hi Ocelot parents                                             

School Council meets at the school on the 1st Tuesday of ‘most months’ at 6pm.  

The 2018-2019 School Council meetings scheduled to date are:

  • Tuesday December 4, 2018 @ 6:00 pm at the school

  • January no meeting

  • Tuesday February 5, 2019 @ 6:00pm at the school

As a Parent of an ÉOJHS student, you are automatically a voice on the School Council and are welcome to attend any or all council sessions even if not holding a formal council role and we want and need to hear from you!

School councils are an important forum through which members of school communities play an advisory role in school improvement planning. The school council is a structured group of parents, principals, teachers, students and community representatives whose purpose is to advise the principal and the school board respecting matters relating to the school. It is a means for parents and community members to work together with the school to support and enhance student learning.

We are seeking input from parents as to how you would like your School Council to move through the 2018-2019 year and we welcome individuals who want to input to and/or help lead the chosen direction. 

For questions for the school council please contact the council chair Jenny Noble, at eojhcouncil@gm.fsd38.ab.ca

Hot Lunch Program – Quarterly Ordering

EOJHS School Fundraising committee is excited to offer hot lunch Monday and Wednesday weekly. The hot lunch program can only operate if we have volunteers, sadly if we do not get more volunteers we will need to cancel it

Volunteers for these days can register at https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/2016328/false#/invitation

Please go to healthyhunger.ca to register your child.

Please note:  all lunches must be claimed at lunch hour.  If a student is away for a field trip or absent due to illness, ordered lunches are held in the Staff refrigerator until the following day for pick up but will not be held further, nor reimbursed.

If you have any questions, please email eojhsmomhotlunch@gmail.com.

**The Hot Lunch program is not affiliated with the School’s Pizza Day.
