his week’s elections. But we need
fuller school councils so that members canroll up their sleeves and get to work in July. That is why
this supplement election is critical,”

engaged parents and community members to take advantage of thisopportunity by coming forward, getting involved and making
a difference.”
Interested candidates need to submit nominating forms at the school of the LSC they are running for duringthe filing period, which runs April 25
