Get Involved!
Posted on 09/07/2022

Are you looking for a way to get involved in your student's school? The School Advisory Council and Home and School Group are both always looking for and welcoming to new members. 

The purpose of a School Advisory Council (SAC) is to act as an advisory body to the school principal and to the Chignecto-Central Regional Centre for Education on a wide range of issues, including policies, curriculum and programs, school practices, student-support services, fund-raising, parent-school communication and school improvement. Most importantly, an SAC participates in the ongoing efforts of the school to continuously improve student achievement and school performance.

School Advisory Councils are volunteer organizations that were established by the Nova Scotia Education Act, and are made up of parents, community members, the school principal, teachers and school support staff. Each school within the CCRCE has a School Advisory Council.

The HES SAC will hold its first meeting on October 4th at 6pm at the school. Elections will be held for Chair and Co-chair at this meeting. Please come check it out, and please share with any community members that may be interested in attending.

Our Home and School is a very active group who are involved in fundraising which helps teachers and students through supplementing our curriculum programs. The Home and School provides money for school trips, for entertainment, for programs that enrich the learning outcomes. The Home and School promotes activities outside the school hours that involve student and parent involvement. The Home and School assists teachers with extra-curricular activities as well as bringing resources to the school. Please feel free to join our school community group and become involved with Hilden Elementary.

The first Home and School meeting of the year will be held on September 28th at 6pm at the school. We hope to see you there!
