We've Got A Facebook Page!

We have set up a Facebook Page to help parents keep up to date on the events and needs of School Council.  You can "Like" us at CMES Parent Connection.

Please Note:   This is strictly an information page.  If you need to connect with us concerning anything posted on the page, please do so by either sending a message or emailing us directly.  Any comments that may get on will be removed.


During the week of October 28—31st the School Council will be hosting a special “Food Drive” for the Orangeville Food Bank. We want to collect as many Snacks for School Lunches as we can. We have set our goal at “3000 days of Snacks”...which equals approx. 400 boxes/packages/items of snack type foods. For every box/item that students bring in, they will receive a “treat” from the School Council.

We will have a table set up on the back tarmack every morning, Monday—Thursday, to collect snack items and to hand out the treats. We will also have a display in the front foyer indicating how close we are to reaching our goal. We will also post the results, daily, on our new FACEBOOK page—CMES Parent Connection. Make sure to “like” us so you can see the results!
