Linsford Park School


Getting Involved

Parents are valued partners who play an integral role in their child’s learning.  We encourage parents to be involved in their child’s education and welcome you at the school.  Involvement opportunities include:

  • Keeping informed by reading newsletters, school messages and teacher notes
  • Daily conversations with your child about their school day, their interests and their friends
  • Encouraging, supporting and modelling positive attitudes about education.  Daily home reading with your child is very important, as is the completion of any homework.
  • Knowing and respecting the school rules, program expectations, discipline policies and grading practices.  For more information please read our Student Handbook, School Assessment Plan and Assurance Plan which are all found on our website.
  • Regular viewing of your child’s educational progress on your PowerSchool Parent Portal
  • Participating in parent-teacher conferences and keeping regular contact with your child’s teacher
  • Attending special events, classroom activities and fieldtrips

All parents of students registered at Linsford Park School are invited to participate in our Parent Council.  The role of the council is to advise the principal on matters involving the school and its students.  This council consists of the school principal, one teacher and parents elected for the positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer.  Elections are held at the Annual General Meeting in September.  Volunteers are always needed to support hot lunch, healthy snack and fundraising efforts.  School council meets monthly on the first Thursday of each month at 6:00pm.  For more information about meeting attendance, please contact our school principal.

All volunteers will respect the confidentiality of the teacher and children, and refrain from discussing them outside the school situation.  If you have any questions or concers, share them with the teacher.
