The Ethel Milliken School Community is entering a long awaited transition as we prepare to say farewell to many families who will be making the move to École Harbour Landing School, including our current chair Kathleen Eisler, and several parent volunteers.  We thank you for your service to our community!

We will have more than half of our existing families staying with EMS, and we look forward to welcoming the many new families registering for the coming 2017-18 school year.  These changes of course have some ripple effects, including openings for the Community Council.  If your child is staying at Ethel Milliken, we invite you to attend the AGM, and to consider putting your name forward for Council to further enhance our community in the new school year.


During the Annual Meeting:

  1. School Community Council (SCC) members will be elected
  2. The SCC will provide an Annual Report
  3. Conduct other business determined by the SCC
  4. The SCC will provide a forum for dialogue with parents and the community
  5. Any amendments to the Constitution will be discussed and voted on


The following positions are open for nominations:

CHAIR -  2 year term

VICE CHAIR - 2 year term



CLICK HERE to view the roles and responsibilities for each position.



Eligibility of Candidates

Section 6.7 of the Constitution states:

"Eligibility for elected positions is defined as: a. Parent/guardian of a student attending Ethel Milliken School; or b. Community members who do not have a student attending Ethel Milliken but who reside within the Board of Education’s School Boundary map for the Ethel Milliken School Community Council."

NOMINATIONS can be submitted via email to kathleen.eisler@gmail.com. There will also be a call for nominations from the floor at the AGM.


The EMSCC welcomes all levels of participation.  If you cannot attend the monthly meetings, but you have a project or idea you want to see happen, please let us know. We look forward to working with the parents of our community for the 2017-2018 school year!
