School Parent Council

BLS Parents are available to answer your questions!

The SPC, or Parent Council, is the independently established “voice” of all the parents in the school community. The Executive Committee of the parent council provides the leadership and direction for the SPC, and elects the Co-Chairs and Co-Clerks. The School Parent Council generally meets once each month during the school year on a week night from 7-8:30 p.m.

Meeting minutes, presentations and parent resources are available by clicking here: SPC Meeting Archive and Parent Resources
