From your School Council Chair;
Hi Ocelot parents
School Council usually meets at the school on the 2nd Wednesday of ‘most months’ and currently we are holding our meetings virtually, everyone is welcome!
All parents are welcome and invited to attend our virtual meetings.
Our meetings are always under one hour in length and we promise not to volunteer you to sign up for jobs.
Future Meeting Dates:
October 13, 2021 7pm - virtual (meeting link will be sent out to all parents the week prior)
We are looking for new committee members and we have executive roles available including the chair and secretary.
WHATS YOUR ROLE? - As a Parent of an EOJHS student, you are automatically a voice on the School Council and are welcome to attend any or all council sessions even if not holding a formal council role and we want and need to hear from you!
WHAT COMMITMENT IS NEEDED? -You can come to 1 meeting or all of them, unless you want a specific board role you are welcome to come and just listen in or participate in discussions whenever you have time, we know life is busy!
WHY WE NEED SCHOOL COUNCILS? – They are an important forum through which members of school communities play an advisory role in school improvement planning.
OUR PURPOSE? - Advise the principal and the school board respecting matters relating to the school. It is a means for parents and community members to work together with the school to support and enhance student learning.
For questions for the school council , or items you would like us to raise at the school council meetings please contact the council chair Jenny Noble, at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hot Lunch Program – Weekly Ordering
EOJHS School Fundraising committee is excited to offer hot lunch Monday and Wednesday weekly. This is organized for the fall, and an update will be sent out once the program is up and running!
Please go to healthyhunger.ca to register your child, and choose EOJHS as the school. A portion of each sale comes back to our school fundraising committee!
Please note: all lunches must be claimed at lunch hour. If a student is away for a field trip or absent due to illness, ordered lunches are held in the Staff refrigerator until the following day for pick up but will not be held further, nor reimbursed.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
**The Hot Lunch program is not affiliated with the School’s Pizza Day.
