The Sheridan Japanese School expects parent involvement and support. Some volunteer opportunities involve helping in the classroom or office, teaching selective classes, cleaning, committees, attending board meetings and much more. SJS requests that each family volunteer at least twenty hours a year. Volunteers involved in any direct contact with students will need to complete paperwork for a background check.
The Sheridan Japanese School School Council meets once monthly and once or twice during the summer months. Council Members often lead school committees and assist with school events, such as the Potluck/Welcoming/Information event at the beginning of the school year.
The School Council is an integral part of SJS and helps to maintain the school's ethos of quality education and academic achievement. Please see 2011-12 meeting minutes below
