Kanata Highlands Public School’s administration and staff team are committed to developing a strong connection with parents and our community. Being involved with our school council is one way for you to receive information about the school, provide guidance and input on school decisions and support your child through their education.
As a parent/guardian of a Kanata Highlands student, you are a member of our school community, which is represented by the School Council. We welcome everyone to be involved through ideas, time, expertise, and any other contributions one might make to benefit our school community.
Our School Council, along with the staff and students, will discuss, organize and provide input into the many activities and programs in the school.
The School Council which normally meets monthly, will work collaboratively with the staff to establish initiatives and activities that benefit the school community, and specifically our children. All parents are welcome to attend meetings. Whether you can make one meeting or many, any involvement is appreciated.
