Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

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​.​​​​

School Council

The Marion Carson School Council invites participation of all parents to monthly meetings. These meetings begin at 

7:00 PM, for the foreseeable future, will be online in Zoom/virtual format.  Minutes will be posted when available under Resources (on the right hand side of this page).
