New Brighton School Council



Recently, our school formed it’s school council.  This is a separate group of parents who act as an advisory group to the school.  While the school council may do some light fundraising to help support and build the school community, the majority of fundraising will still be done via our fundraising association.  Below is an explanation of the two groups and how they have different roles.  Three of our board members are also serving on the school council.

We look forward to working with the school council on helping to ensure we have the best school for our kids.  Please follow them on Facebook at
