With some exceptions, council meets on the first Monday of every month.

All Heritage Glen parents are welcome to attend – you do not need to be a member of council to come out and participate.

Free babysitting is provided in the concourse.

Minutes will be posted to this site when they become available. Copies can also be found on the School Council bulletin board in the school. Minutes for the current and previous school year can be found under the “Documents” menu.

How to Participate in Council

Council is elected within the first 30 days of every school year, and there are many ways to participate on council without being a voting member. Every parent is always welcome to attend any and all council meetings, or maybe you have some time or resources to devote to a special event, or an idea for a fundraising initiative. If you would like to be a part of a committee, please email the council representative listed below, and let them know how you can help. For general inquiries, please email hgschoolcouncil@gmail.com.
