WHAT WE DO
Muriel Martin Parent Council makes decisions that support the life and work in our school community. It is a forum in which parents are invited to bring their ideas for the community and share positive feedback, as well as communicate their concerns. It is an opportunity to listen to administration report on current issues affecting the school community. All parents or guardians of students attending Muriel Martin are voting members of Parent Council, and you are welcome to come join us.
We, the Parent Council, plan and host educational parent workshops, our annual Family Dance, the Staff Appreciation Luncheon, and Year-end BBQ. We also coordinate the care of our beautiful outdoor garden areas.
