Dear parents, teachers, staff and students,

Welcome back to all returning Margaret Manson (MMES) students, teachers and families and a warm welcome to new families joining our school community for the first time.

Every September, an Annual General Assembly (AGA) is held at the school, immediately following curriculum night. This year during the AGA, parents voted on the following items:

  • Elected parent representatives for the 2-year term positions on Governing Board (GB).

  • Selected LBPSB Region Parents’ Committee and Alternate Parent representatives.

  • The GB Annual Report was presented.

The Governing Board brings together parents and school staff who work in partnership towards a primary goal of making decisions that benefit our Margaret Manson students. The GB meetings are open to the public. If you are interested in attending the GB meetings, please visit the school’s calendar for future dates and times. To learn more about our school’s GB you can view a summary of responsibilities on our school website and more information can be found by visiting the LBPSB website at

If you have any questions, please come see one of our members or email the Governing Board at: 

We hope to see you at one of our upcoming meetings.
