2020/2021 Saint John XXIII School Council Executive

Alana Seymour – Chair 

Hi everyone! My name is Alana Seymour and I have two amazing kiddos, who attend our fabulous St. John XXIII school. My oldest, Sage, is in her final year at St. John, and my youngest, Remi, is just beginning her school journey in kindergarten. I am incredibly blessed to be the chair of our amazing Parent Council for the 2020/2021 school year. I began my Parent Council journey three years ago, as the Communications/Classroom rep. Being part of the parent council has helped me become more involved in my child's education and has enabled me to develop relationships with other parents, teachers, and administration. I highly recommend getting involved in your child's school, it is rewarding in many ways. Please feel free to connect with me if you have any questions.
