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​.​​​​

We have a Parent Advisory Council that meets the third Thursday of every month. Our Council works in a collaborative manner with the school administration and staff to significantly enhance the learning opportunities we provide for students. It also provides an opportunity for parents to learn more about the school, support initiatives, and provide input.

During these advisory meetings we talk about our hopes for your children, share ideas, and plan events. Our meetings are informal: we sit around the table, talk, and laugh. All parents and caregivers of PFS students are welcome to attend. We hope to see you there.

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Council meets on the third Thursday of each month from 2:00-3:00 PM.
