All parents are part of the Meadowlark Christian School Council and are therefore encouraged to attend the monthly School Council meetings. Topics at meetings include issues related to the school, exploration of ways in which parents can support initiatives at the school, and the development of new initiatives to be organized and implemented by parents. New ideas and suggestions are always welcome. Many major decisions effecting the operation of the school are discussed and parent input is sought. The council is a very important way to strengthen the partnership between parents and staff.
Meadowlark Christian School (MCS) Foundation
The MCS Foundation exists to foundationally support all operational aspects of the Community Christian Education Program. MCS Foundation Ltd. is a not-for-profit corporation, incorporated under the Companies Act in the province of Alberta.
The Foundation consists of a board of directors. Core directors are appointed through a board process. People with a heart for Christian Education, with suitable gifts and talents and an ability to serve, usually fill these positions. There is no requirement that they have children who attend the school.
Parent directors are elected by the parent body. A parent director is the legal parent or guardian of a current student. Nominations open in June. The election occurs at September’s “Meet the Staff and MCS BBQ”.
