Jump to SPC meeting minutes

All parents are members of the School Parent Council. School Parent Council meetings are held every other month, usually on a Thursday evening. Each year, the SPC Executive Committee officers will set the dates and times for the meetings, as well as any special meetings, presentations and events. Please check your e-mails from the JQES Google Group for meeting reminders! If you would like to join the JQES Google Group, please go to groups.google.com, search for JQES Google Group and Apply to Join after submitting the necessary information.
