This year we need to elect a new parent representative to join our council for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school years. Our school council is made up of exemplary members, and we are anticipating the election of another parent who will be just as outstanding. The election for our new parent member will be held at the PTO Meeting/Spring Concert on Thursday, May 7 at 6:00pm.  A nomination form can be found at this link – Peeples School Council Nomination.  Additional copies are also available in the school office.  If you wish to nominate someone else or yourself, please complete the nomination form and return it to the office by Friday, May 1. Thank you for your support of our school council!
