    What is Site Council?

    Site Council is TOPS' main governing body (similar to a PTA) and is made up of school administrators, appointed staff, a member of the Eastlake community, and elected representatives who are family members or caregivers of children enrolled in TOPS. We are also trustees of TOPS' non-profit fundraising organization called Friends of TOPS (FOT). Site Council supports curriculum enhancements and community building projects with the funds raised by FOT.

    Site Council typically meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month in the TOPS library from 5:30 - 7:30 pm. You are welcome and encouraged to attend (but only elected representatives may vote). You will receive communications and minutes from Site Council via your grade band’s Google group throughout the school year. If you have questions or would like more information about Site Council or TOPS, we are here to help.

    Please contact your grade band Parent Rep or any other Site Council representative if you have questions about the TOPS community or school processes.
