School Culture & Environment at the CBE

Our students, staff and school community share the responsibility of building a safe, positive, inclusive, equitable and welcoming learning environment. Along with its own school culture, each school reflects a unified CBE culture of inclusion. This includes our CBE-wide approach to preventing bullying and to protecting our LGBTQ students. Learn more about our system-wide commitment to having an inclusive environment on the CBE website. 

If you have any questions about how we work together within our school to build positive learning environments for student success, please contact us directly.​

Culture & Environment

Highlighting our Marvelous Students

As a staff, we believe that each of our students contributes in their own way to our learning community. We therefore highlight students in a variety of ways including:

  • Recognizing students as Character Captains who demonstrate the various virtues at various learning celebrations throughout the school year
  • Celebrating each student as a “Student of the Week” in individual classes and on the” Student of the Week” Board
  • Bulletin boards of pictures and student work in the hall
  • Character cards for extracurricular clubs
  • Classroom leader from each class to represent classrooms and provide communication and leadership
  • Use of TV in hallway to highlight kids’ work/ talents/ interest /participation
  • Daily announcements
  • Announcing each child's birthday
  • French plays
  • Drama presentations
  • Music celebrations
  • Student-involved Parent/Teacher Conferences
