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 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 School 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 and decision-making authority. 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

Every parent of a child in our school is a member of the School Council and all are encouraged to attend the informal monthly meetings held in the school learning commons. The meetings will be the third Wednesday of each month. Check our yearly calendar for the specific dates. School Council works together with school staff to enhance our children’s learning environment. Volunteer parents, through the Council, assist the school in meeting its needs and goals.

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Meetings are held once a month on a Thursday at 6:30 PM in the school Learning Commons. Check our Calendar page for specific dates.
