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

The Samuel W. Shaw School Council is a parent-run organization and all of our parents are automatically members. We work cooperatively with the school administration to enhance student learning at the school. Council meetings provide a valuable opportunity for the exchange of ideas and information between the school administration and parents. These meetings are generally held in the early evening on the second Thursday of each month. Everyone is welcome. 

Meeting Dates/Schedule

At present, Parent Council meetings will be held virtually, for Samuel W. Shaw School. Joining info will be shared with parents through School Messenger emails and can be found below.  

Please note, we are using Microsoft Teams for our meetings, Teams can be accessed through an internet browser, phone and tablet app or as part of Microsoft Office on your computer.

  • September 17, 2020 @ 6:30pm on Microsoft Teams

RT @ChildMntlHealth: Is today the most depressing day of the year?
