School Council

Springfield operates a very active School Council. Taking part in the School council is a great way to meet other parents and get involved in your child’s education.

The Council, in cooperation with school staff, parents, and community members, provides advice and assistance in matters relating to the standard of education, student achievement, physical and social development of the students, and operation of the school.

Our mission is to help the teachers of Springfield school achieve the 3 year education plan by taking an active role in our children’s education

Meetings take place the second Wednesday of each month. The council is open to discussion regarding educational matters and ideas for school improvement, and there is no commitment to attend every meeting. Questions or concerns can be e-mailed to

If you'd like to be on our email list to receive information about school events, meeting minutes or general information, send an email to the school council's email address.  You may also follow us on our Facebook page to find this valuable information and much more.  The page is titled Springfield Parent Council.
