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​.​​​​

The Elbow Park School Council is a terrific way to meet the parents, find out about school activities first hand and contribute to your child's education. Every parent or legal guardian of a child attending Elbow Park School is a member of the School Council and has the right to attend meetings and vote.

Council meets six times per year. The meetings are friendly, informative and provide another means to meet other parents and staff within our school.

RT @yyCBEdu: We respect the right of parents/guardians to make their own decisions about sending their children to school. If your child will not be attending classes please ensure you contact your school's attendance line to report the absence https://t.co/BJFLrXCz2i #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/tbMesQe6Zs

RT @yyCBEdu: We are planning for all schools to be open as usual during the cold snap. If this changes for any reason, an update will be posted on our website, and parents should watch their email for any updates https://t.co/VP7agviwuy #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/vD32spavwu

RT @yyCBEdu: Very cold temperatures are forecast for Calgary in the coming days that can make getting to and from school more challenging.
