One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the School Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​​​​

Our School Council meets once each month. At these meetings parents and school staff discuss current and upcoming activities at the school and at the CBE system level. 

We enjoy a high level of parent participation in school activities and have an environmental parent group that is improving our outdoor learning spaces on the school grounds. We highly appreciate the work and support we receive from our parents.

Volunteering

We would love to include you in the many volunteer opportunities to be a part of the school community: onsite, after-hours, offsite, in the classroom, in the school – there are many ways you can help.

Each classroom and grade will have different requirements so in an effort to assist the teachers and School Council we are gathering emails of people who would like to:

  • Be a part of School Council 
  • Volunteer for school events 
  • Volunteer in your child’s classroom 
  • Volunteer for the school as a whole 
  • Help out after hours 
  • Help with Fundraising through CHEES - Capitol Hill Elementary Enhancement Society

Any amount of time, any task you can help with is really appreciated; even the smallest effort can make a big difference. Learn more on our Volunteer page.
