Parent Participation Organization

What is a Parent Participation Organization?

Once a child begins their long journey of attending school for the very first time, it is a very normal and expected reaction of a parent to want to be aware and informed of what goes on at their child's school. The Parent Participation Organization (P.P.O.) is a great place to embark.

The P.P.O. is made up of parents and is chaired by parents under the guidance of the school's Principal and Vice-Principal. Meetings are held once a month during the evenings where parents are informed of school news. Concerns, ideas and events are brought forth, discussed and brought to Governing Board for approval when needed. Sub-Committees with mandates are formed for parents to better respond to the different needs of each category such as pictures, dress code, Teacher Appreciation Week, Science Fair, graduation etc.

Pierre De Coubertin is very fortunate and proud to have such an active P.P.O. that works well together as a team, collaborates efficiently and effectively along with the Governing Board, staff and administration of the school. It is thanks to the dedication of all parent volunteers that many events unfold with great success!
