​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 held on the Second Tuesday of each month.

A HUGE thank you to all of the many volunteers who helped with the Ace Airport Casino Jan 25/26.  We really appreciate the sleepless nights, time off from work, and alternate childcare arrangements that went into making this volunteer event a success.  This money will ensure that the Home & School Association can continue to fund the many essential learning tools/activities that make our school so great.   


We have received a $500 School Council Engagement Grant.  Please fill out this parent survey to help us select what parent workshop would best benefit families at Mount View.  We would also welcome your ideas.
