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​.​​​​


Meeting Dates/Schedule (2019 - 2020)

All meetings take place at CJP school from 7:00 - 8:30 PM on Wednesdays. We welcome parents/guardians into the school at 6:30 for conversation and networking. ALL parents/guardians are encouraged to attend

  • September 25, 2019
    • Meeting notes are now posted in the sidebar on the right hand side of this page.
  • October 23, 2019 - AGM 
    • Consent agendas and agendas are posted in the sidebar on the right hand side of this page when available.
    • Come meet other CJP parents, get updates from the school's leadership team and help the school effectively support and enhance student learning! If child care is a barrier to attending, the Learning Commons will be open for students to engage in quiet reading or a movie while their parents attend the meeting.
    • All families are welcome to attend School Council meetings. You are a member if your child attends this school. We value your attendance at the meeting and encourage your involvement. Without parent involvement, volunteering, and input we are not able to offer the amazing programs and initiatives at our school such as Spirit Wear, Fun Lunches, Fall Dance, and the Book Fair!
    • Our SDP (School Development Plan) will be shared and input requested.
  • November 27, 2020

  • January 22, 2020
  • February 19, 2020

All families with a child who attends CJP are automatically a member of School Council. School Council plays an important advisory role to school leadership. Without parents present at School Council meetings it is very difficult to learn about your priorities, concerns and celebrations. CJP school leadership often comes to School Council meetings requesting feedback and suggestions to ensure parent/ guardian voice is heard before school wide decisions are made.

We value the participation of all families at our School Council meetings and hope to see you at the next meeting so we are able to hear your voice as well!
