About Us

About Us

The ACES School Council is a parent-led team that works to ensure that Adrienne Clarkson Elementary School remains a vibrant and enriching learning environment that promotes student success. School Council aims to enrich the lives of students by providing advice on issues affecting students, organizing special events, strengthening home-school communication, fundraising to contribute to sports, music, library, and STEM programs, as well as transportation for field trips,and school yard improvement.



We talk about everything and anything that is important to the ACES community, as well as raise funds to provide necessities that are no longer in school budgets. We have an opportunity to provide input into our children’s learning environment, work together on programs and events, raise issues, ask questions and stay up-to-date on everything important and new at our school. School Council is a fantastic way to connect with the school community. It is a great opportunity to come together and discuss current and future issues which will impact our school’s students and their families. In the process, we all get to know each other a little better!

Membership on School Council is open to all parents/guardians of students enrolled at ACES. The membership of a school council changes from year to year. Each year, potential new council members will be recruited for election, elections will take place, and the newly elected members will be oriented to their tasks. Ideally, the membership of the school council will reflect the diversity of its school community. Parents and guardians must form the majority of members on the council. All members may bring before the council the issues and concerns of the groups that they represent and provide links to those groups. For a more comprehensive understanding of membership on school councils, please visit the Ontario Ministry of Education’s School Councils: A Guide for Members
