We invite parents and staff of the Heath Brook School Community to serve on an advisory council to the principal of the school.  This is a different body from the PAC, though both work to support our school.

From the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education: Councils are to assist principals by reviewing the school building budget and developing the school improvement plan. Councils may also take on other responsibilities… as granted by the local school committees. School improvement plans are submitted to the local school committee for review and approval.

In general, councils have approximately the same number of parents and teachers on them. At Heath Brook, we invite as many folks who are willing to commit to the monthly meetings and who can fit around our conference table.

School Site Council.  Our energies this year will be turned toward the following:

 – Preschool programming in Tewksbury

 – Configuration of classrooms and learning spaces after grade 2 goes to Center Elementary School

 – STEM learning and relationship with Corning and Corning Foundation

 – Enrichment programming for students and families (Destination Imagination or Odyssey of the Mind)

If you are interested in serving on the Heath Brook Site Council, please send an email to Principal Terry Gerrish – tgerrish@tewksbury.k12.ma.us –
