Engaging on School Budgets​​ and School Fees

Each spring, our school prepares a school budget for the upcoming school year and sets school fees for some activities and services. As we prepare the school budget, engaging with staff, parents and students is an important part of the process.

Watch for news and information on our website and in emails sent through SchoolMessenger. Another great way to keep informed is by attending our school council meetings.

In addition to news stories, we'll post information about upcoming engagement opportunities on this page. We'll also share feedback gathered at meetings and through online surveys on this page.

If you have any questions, please contact the principal. ​​​

School Budget Engagement

Here is a link to the 2019 - 2020 Bishop Pinkham Budget Presentation that was shared at our April 25, 2019, school council meeting.When the parents at school council had a chance to reflect on the three questions they shared that:

As a school community, we should continue doing… “the weekly newsletter, all that is done around mental wellness, homeroom and health programming, and dedicated time to homeroom and resource”

As a school community, we should stop doing/change how we do… no comments

As a school community, we should start doing… no comments

If you have time to help us understand what is important to you and are able to share additional feedback to these questions please email sepicard@cbe.ab.ca with your answers and Mr Picard will consider how your voices can influence our budget.

We invite you to join us for our October 24th school council meeting to hear about our actual student enrolment, any budget adjustments and how feedback could or could not influence the adjustments made.
