Join a Parent Council Committee

Parent Council determines which committees are needed each year.  These sub-committees are the “working groups” of our school council, the potential of which is limited only by your energy and enthusiasm. With a recently expanded roster of committees, to meet the diverse interests and talents of our school community, we hope you will find something that catches your eye!

Please join us in enriching our children’s educational experience at Humbercrest Public School.  CLICK HERE to sign-up for a committee!
