School Council

The Equinox Holistic Alternative School Council is a group of volunteers contributing our skills and time and care to ensure our parent and guardian community is engaged and that our teachers and school staff are supported. We are advocates for Holistic Curriculum, outdoor education, environmental stewardship and anti-oppression work in education. And for raising kind kids as a community.

Everyone in our school community is welcome and wanted at our School Council meetings. They’re quick and online and friendly and are a nice touchstone. Mark your calendars and watch your inbox for the zoom link a day or two before each meeting.
