School Council and Parent Association
ESTHER STARKMAN SCHOOL PARENT ASSOCIATION (ESSPA)
We are a group of parent volunteers who work to ensure that our school is a safe, enriched, wonderful place for our children to learn and grow. Our purpose is to connect parents and families to their school community, as well as create and fundraise for initiatives which support the school's philosophy and goals.
The ESSPA is composed of two boards: School Council & the Fundraising Association. While they share some executive board positions, they have two distinct roles.
School Council focuses on educational matters, provides input on topics such as program planning, school budgets, and school operations, and serves as a liaison between parents, the school and community groups.
The Fundraising Association’s purpose is to raise funds to support school priorities. These initiatives are based on feedback from teachers and the principal and are chosen to positively impact the everyday lives of students. For example, providing a mobile library of books for the school, creating a sensory room, or purchasing new gym equipment.
We meet each month to work towards our goals. All parents and families are welcome to attend!
