The A. L. Horton Elementary School - School Advisory Council is a group of parents who meet at least 8 times a year to provide advice and suggestions to the school administration on school matters. They review Elk Island Public Schools policy proposals, and support various school projects by funds and labor. The council also initiated the formation of the "Friends of A. L. Horton Elementary School Society", in order to raise funds for the playground, technology, swimming program, etc. The council also sponsors hot lunches as fundraisers for student programs. All parents are members, and therefore welcome at meetings and are allowed to vote. Please watch the newsletters for the meeting dates and related news items.
