​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

All Mount View parents are invited to attend the monthly meetings of our School Council. The School Council is comprised of both parents and staff representatives. Our goal is to work together to create a positive learning environment for our children. Through the council, we can strengthen communication between home and school. We discuss and plan for our school’s future. We also support special events, such as Special Lunches, which generate funds for our school programs. The Mount View School Council and Parent Association is a great way to stay informed and involved in school-related issues.

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Meetings are generally held on the Second Tuesday of each month. Please see the Calendar for more details.

The first meeting of the school year will be on September 12, 2023.

Winter Food Drive 

From December 1st to the 20th, we will be collecting items for the Food Bank to help those less fortunate. Classes will have a decorative box for our food train to fill up with non-perishable items. December is a wonderful time of year to encourage students to think about why we make donations and to consider everything they have that others may not.  


You can’t say no to popcorn!  Get your Kernels Popcorn order in before Friday Dec 1.  You can place your order on Healthy Hunger.
