​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 Education 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. 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​.​

Another day on the land. Looking at last year’s sage, rose hips, the “eyes” of the aspen, golden sap, and of course crocuses. #WeAreCBE https://t.co/BojtoKN2Wo

A wonderful day for the grade 7’s to experience some Land Based Learning. It was HOT but full of beauty. The Budding Moon is near and the signs of Moyoyi (Blackfoot for spring) were everywhere. Grade 6’s go tomorrow. #WeAreCBE https://t.co/2qsw9B4hAz
