Article II Section 1 states “The purpose of the Council is to advise the Bishop’s Designee of Father Jeff Poirot and Father Alexander Ambrose and the Principal or President of Notre Dame Catholic School on matters related to the operation of Notre Dame Catholic School.”

Composition & Function:

Positions on the School Advisory Council are filled by its nomination committee with approval from the Principal of Notre Dame Catholic School and the pastors of Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church and Sacred Heart Catholic Church. These representatives are tasked with attending School Advisory Council meetings in order to remain informed on the actions of the school on matters of current need and on plans to ensure the welfare of Notre Dame Catholic School in the future.

If anyone has concerns about the school or issues that they wish to be brought to the School Advisory Council for consideration, they should contact Principal Michael Edghill at michael.edghill@ndcswf.org.
