​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​.​

School Council

As a parent or guardian, you can automatically become a member of the School Council. We invite your input and opinions to help us support EMJ students and staff. We work closely with the Administration to support the initiatives and goals of both the School and The Council.  We realize that parents are very busy but we welcome any involvement that you are able to give. 

Meeting Dates/Schedule

All parents and guardians are invited to attend a EMJ School Council meeting to get a better understanding of the direction the school is taking towards your child's education. Meetings take place at 6:00 pm on the second Tuesday of each month. See our Calendar page for dates and times.   An email link to the virtual online meetings is sent out close to the meeting date. Meetings for the 2023-2024 school year are hosted virtually and in person.
