Governing Board

 

What do we do?

We are a decision-making body within the school that assists in defining policy and procedures to meet the educational needs of all students and acts in the best interest of the students.

The Governing Board:

  • analyzes the school’s situation in terms of the school board’s strategic plan
  • adopts the educational project and oversees its implementation and periodic evaluation
  • approves the school’s success plan, rules of conduct and the safety measures
  • responds to LBPSB consultations (ex: Enrolment Criteria, Budget, Major School Change)
  • review and approve proposed field trips by staff as well as fundraisers by Home & School
  • review and allocates funds as proposed by staff and Home & School.

Governing Board meetings are public and we invite you at attend. If you have an issue, concern or question, please email us at clearpoint_gb@lbpearson.ca.

Rebecca Belmonte
Ciao! Hello! Bonjour! As a TESL teacher and second generation Italian, I love languages and that is one of the reasons I chose Clearpoint Elementary for my son. I love how the French and English languages live in harmony and that comes from the cooperation of everyone present. I would like to help and give back to the school in any way I can so I decided to become a member of the Governing Board. My son is starting Grade 1 and I would like to contribute to making the life of the students at school the best one possible. Have a great year!
  Sandra Fisher
Teacher
Hi! My name is Sandra Fisher and I am thrilled to be a part of the Clearpoint staff! I love the IB philosophy and am excited to be teaching grade 3. Our students are natural inquirers and I can't wait to see them develop socially, emotionally and academically over the course of the year. I am definitely a "risk-taker" who takes a "balanced" approach to learning. I am "committed" to fostering my students’ "curiosity" while encouraging them to "collaborate". I believe in open and honest "communication" while helping our students bloom as we learn about and demonstrate the attributes of the learner profile! Here's to a wonderful year!
     
Dov Bensimon
Secretary
Having a daughter at Clearpoint Elementary for the past several years, I have often attended meetings of the Governing Board as a member of the public. I am honoured to have been elected to an official role as secretary of the board this year. I look forward to being able to contribute to the school community in this role. As a meteorologist, I am always glad to try and help with planning of events by forecasting the weather as well.
  Tassie Fyon
Daycare
I have been at Clearpoint for 7 years now, 5 of which have been as the Daycare Technician. I feel so lucky to work with great people and see all these wonderful children grow so quickly.

Marie-Flore Gignac
My family has been part of the Clearpoint Elementary Community since 2014, when my daughter started Kindergarten. I now have my two children attending the school in grades 1 and 3 and every morning I see them leaving for Clearpoint with a smile on their faces: this makes me feel very grateful and privileged to be part of this wonderful community. I have been involved in the school in many different ways over the past few years and I now look forward to actively contributing to its ongoing success as a Governing Board member. Please feel free to speak with me and voice any concerns that you would like to see addressed by the Governing Board.

I'm a proud Clearpoint parent having had my two children attend the school since Kindergarten. My son is in Grade Five and daughter in Grade Three, both of whom enjoy all the school has to offer.
