About Henry Larsen School Council

The Henry Larsen School Council is a parent-led team that works to ensure Henry Larsen Elementary School remains a vibrant and enriching learning environment that promotes student success. School Council tries to enrich the lives of the students by:

  • providing advice on issues affecting students
  • organizing special events
  • strengthening home-school communication
  • fundraising to contribute to sports, music, library, academic programs as well as school yard improvement.

Membership on School Council is open to all parents/guardians of students enrolled at Henry Larsen ES, as well as community members, the school principal (non-voting), the vice-principal, a teacher, an administrative staff member, and a student (optional). Involvement in Council can mean anything from attending monthly meetings, being a full voting member, serving on the Executive, or helping with one of many Council-sponsored events or fundraising activities that benefit students and their educational experience.
