What is a Community School?
Community Schools in B.C. are elementary or secondary schools with the belief held by residents and staff in the value of community involvement. A Community School is an exciting approach to the integration of a local school with the neighbourhood that it serves. These schools strive to involve local residents in a variety of ways.
MEADOWS OUT OF SCHOOL CARE PROGRAM (MOOSC) – This program operates out of the school’s multipurpose room from Monday through Friday. It may also runs on non-instructional days and possibly school holidays (such as Spring Break) if there is sufficient demand. Program registration forms and additional program information such as policy statements are available in the school office, or on the link to the left. The program has developed a great reputation in the community and may have a waitlist.
LANGLEY MEADOWS COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION (LMCA) – The Langley Meadows Community School has an Advisory Council, the Langley Meadows Community Association, which is a group of volunteers, consisting of parents, community residents, staff and agency representatives. This council promotes free exchange of ideas, identifies local needs and participates in decision-making and feedback in areas of local concern.
The Langley Meadows Community Association has Community School Coordinators to assist the community in realizing the following objectives:
the encouragement of community participation and involvement
the effective utilization of school facilities for people of all ages
the development of a working relationship with public and private agencies
the development of the school as a resource for the whole neighbourhood
the utilization of the total resources of the community to enhance the development of basic learning skills
