​​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 way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Parent societies are a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. The school principal is not part of this group. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Parent Society

What makes a great school? Or rather, who makes a great school? You are the one that can make a difference. 

Our Parent Society is Known as: Bishop Pinkham Parents' Association (BPPA)

Who are we and what do we do? Bishop Pinkham School Council and Bishop Pinkham Parents’ Association (BPPA), work together to build community support, enhance student learning, promote student advocacy, and raise funds to benefit Bishop Pinkham School. Here’s how you can help…        

BECOME A MEMBER: While every parent or guardian of a student at Bishop Pinkham is automatically a member of School Council, BPPA members are required to complete/submit a new membership form every year: https://bishoppinkhamparents.c... 

DONATE: Our annual direct donation campaign is in lieu of sending students home with the task of selling door-to-door, collecting money, and delivering goods. Please help us avoid the stress of managing these tasks by donating as little as $15/month, which can help us achieve our goals and support our students and teachers. Please go to www.bishoppinkhamparents.com to sign up today. You can choose to designate your gift to the area you are most passionate about (i.e. mental health resources, enrichment programs, new technology, student fund, etc.). All contributions are tax deductible. 

VOLUNTEER: Consider volunteering on either one of our Boards or within the school for special events, clubs, teams, etc. To begin, simply complete the following form: https://cbe.ab.ca/FormsManuals... and either drop it off at the school office or email it to bishoppinkham@cbe.ab.ca   

WE NEED TO FILL THE FOLLOWING POSITIONS: Bishop Pinkham School Council: Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Key Communicator BPPA: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Director(s) Casino If you would like to see the by-laws/operating procedures for these organizations or have any questions about the roles/volunteer time commitment, please contact us: bishoppinkhamparents@gmail.com OR bishoppinkham@cbe.ab.ca

Message From Our President

More than ever, our public school system relies on the talents and committed efforts of its parent population. We are delighted with the response to our Bishop Pinkham Parents Association membership drive this year, and encouraged by the new faces and voices that form our committee. To that end, we’d like to remind you that you’ll need to complete a new membership form for the fall semester, as per regulatory requirements. Our fall AGM will be held on October 21st,  when we’ll hold our annual executive elections.  We are already looking ahead to fundraising initiatives to benefit all students—and looking to our committee members to contribute their special skills and innovative ideas. September will also introduce a “You Get Coffee, Your Kids Get Opportunity!” fundraising initiative.

Again, our sincere thanks for your involvement this year. Have a wonderful summer break!

Sincerely,

Carol Collinge, President

Bishop Pinkham Parents’ Association
