School Council Meetings will be held on the fourth (or fifth) Tuesday of every month at 7pm (with some exceptions). The meetings are held in-person in our school library.  To make life easier, some meetings may be held online during the colder months, weather depending. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. Find out first-hand how to get involved, and get an inside view of the why and how of ÉPK. School Council meeting calendar 22-23

We encourage you to be an active participant in your child's learning.  It is known that children whose parents are involved in their child's school have a higher degree of success in school.  Parents are encouraged to volunteer for special faith and culture events.

Caring Corner Definition

The definition of “Caring Corner” was changed in 2021-2022 (and can be found outlined in the AGM dated May 24, 2022). With this small change to the definition/wording, we saw an immediate moment of gratitude and heartfelt appreciation and we are so grateful we can offer support. 

As voted on during a meeting in 2021-2022, we have broadened the definition of
“Caring Corner” and what our funds will be used for:

Caring Corner financially supports the children and families of EPK when the need
arises. Caring Corner supports the following but is not limited to: ensuring that all
children in EPK have extra snacks and/or lunch options available, paying for hot
lunch orders for those in need, and providing financial relief during holiday
seasons or when a family crisis may arise (financial relief would be in the form of
gift cards or purchase of necessary items, for example: food baskets). School
Council Executives work in conjunction with our Health and Wellness Support
Worker and EPK Administration to ensure the funds are properly distributed when
needed. Funds are only distributed when the amount and requirement of said
funds are discussed and agreed upon with the School Council Executives, School
Association members, the Health and Wellness Worker, and EPK Administration.
