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

Meeting Dates/Schedule

As a new school that has opened during a pandemic, we are starting off slowly and would love as many parents to attend our meetings as possible.  We currently have three meetings planned during the school year.  If a fourth meeting is required, advance notice will be given to the school community.  If you are interested in being part of our School Council, please email Michelle Brinson at mlbrinson@cbe.ab.ca.
