THANK YOU to all the parents who came out to our first School Council meeting of the year last Monday night.  It was a great meeting and we are looking forward to a great year ahead!  We want to welcome the following people who will make up the executive of the council this year....Co-Chairs, Brenda Tervit & Bah Boubacar Caba  (Boubah), Secretary Kelly McKee (& Karen Brown Furey as a fill in when necessary).  We are still looking for someone to take on the role of Treasurer to finalize the executive team.  Please let us know if you would like to find out more about this important role on our council.  We are also looking for 2 - 4 people who would consider coming to the school approx. twice a month (you set the day and time) to be our money counters.  If you would have an interest in this please contact us.  (See the email below).

THANK YOU, as well, for coming out and supporting our Meet The Teacher Open House and BBQ as well as the Bookfair.  It was a great night!  We're hoping that the many who we handed out "Get Connected - Stay Connected" slips are doing just that!  Our plan is to update the blog on Monday of each week and whenever else is needed.  If you like our Facebook page we will be updating that 2 - 3 times a week reminding you when forms are due, special events coming up, what food days are happening that week and any urgent request/needs that arise.  We want you to feel connected to your school.

If you need to contact our new leadership you can do that by emailing  Barb White will continue to organize the special events so you will hear from her from time to time as well.

Here's to a great year at CMES!
