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 Samuel W. Shaw School Council is a parent-run organization and all of our parents are automatically members. We work cooperatively with the school administration to enhance student learning at the school. Council meetings provide a valuable opportunity for the exchange of ideas and information between the school administration and parents. These meetings are generally held in the early evening on the second Thursday of each month. Everyone is welcome. 

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Meetings are held in the Learning Commons at Samuel W. Shaw School. 

Meeting times for the 2019-2020 school year are as follows:

  • September 12, 2019 at 6:30 pm
