Embrace the Joy of Reading!

Chris Usif

Learning to read is the most important gift your child will ever receive. What else can make imaginations soar, taking children on endless adventures to new and exciting worlds? On Jan. 27, Family Literacy Day reminds us to embrace the joy of reading as a family. Ask your child today what they are excited about reading!​​

Board of Trustees

CBE students are successful and this is clearly demonstrated in the Annual Education Results Report (AERR) for 2021-22. The AERR is the CBE’s “report card” on its performance for the previous year. The 2021-22 AERR demonstrates that despite the challenges of the past year, students continue to achieve success in their learning. Trustees are so proud of the accomplishments, dedication and commitment of CBE staff, students, and their families.​​
