Parent Groups

We are proud of the dynamic, cooperative and strong partnership between our school and our families.

Parents are invited and encouraged to get involved and take an active role at École Rio Terrace Schule.  

Research shows that parent participation in their child’s education contributes significantly to their child’s success in school.

Thank you to all our parents for the time and talent you bring to our school.  




Rio Terrace School Council

Rio Terrace School Council is a group of parents, the principal, teachers and other school staff as well as other community members who have an interest in the school. School Council advises the principal respecting matters related to the school. Every parent or guardian of a student at Rio Terrace is automatically a voting member of School Council and is welcomed and encouraged to attend our council meetings to discuss and vote on the issues we are looking to address. School Council makes financial recommendations to the fundraising society, the Rio Terrace Education Society. School Council is governed by Section 55 of the Education Act and the Alberta School Councils Regulation. Check the SchoolZone calendar for meeting dates, usually the last Monday of the month.
