Parent Council

The Betty Gibson Parent Council is committed to providing opportunities for parents to become involved within the school and it's activitities, and enhancing the quality of education for all our children by providing resources for the teachers and students. We want to encourage communication between parents, school, and community.
Meetings are held at the first Monday of each month at 7:00pm. We welcome all parents/guardians to attend meetings. Parent Council meetings start at 7PM in the Staff Room unless otherwise noted. Childcare is provided during the meetings so parents can feel free to bring their children to the meetings.  If the Parent Council is aware of parents needing Spanish or Mandarin translators for the meetings, they will try to accommodate those families. Please let the Parent Council know if you are requiring a translator for the meetings.    

Brandon School Division currently supports our school Parent Council groups through membership with the Manitoba Association of Parent Councils (MAPC).
