Meet Your Board & Council Reps!
The Parent Education Council (BPEC) is made up of parent volunteers in the program who promote, support and strengthen the program in all ways possible. The council is also a valuable channel of communication between class members, teachers, administrators, and the community.
Parents are elected to various board positions and help raise funds or host events throughout the year for the students and their families. If you would like to join the board or want to be a council representative, please come to one of the monthly Council Meetings.
