One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Under the School Act, a parent society is a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. The school principal is not part of this group. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Our Parent Society is Known as Capitol Hill Elementary Enhancement Society (CHEES).

CHEES or “The Capitol Hill Elementary Enhancement Society” is our fundraising committee that seeks funds needed to make our school both highly successful and enriched. To date, funds raised from CHEES grants, casinos & fundraisers have funded our new school playground, our artist-in-residence program, new technology equipment, enrichment resources and performances. CHEES works with Council and the Principal to prioritize funding need.

Meeting Dates

Meetings are scheduled on the second Monday of each month and immediately follows the School Council meeting.

Our Members

Chair: Josh Orzech
Treasurer: Darryl Morrison
Secretary: Susan Gilliland
Director: Amber Kirby
