New Brighton community is very fortunate to have three schools. We are thankful to a number of dedicated individuals who worked hard to lobby the provincial government for these schools in our community – this was the start of the New Brighton Community Association. With their hard work, we now have the following schools:
- New Brighton Elementary School CBE K-4 = 600 students – K-5 starting 2022
- Dr.Martha Cohen School CBE 5-9 = 900 students – 6-9 starting 2022
- St. Marguerite School CSSD K-6 = 600 students
School Crosswalk Safety
The safety of our children walking to and from school is paramount. Please drive safely around school areas. The bell times are listed below to help our community members that do not have children at school, to plan their drive around them! This will reduce the congestion at these very busy times.
- New Brighton Elementary School Monday – Thursday 8:10am – 3:10pm
Friday 8:10am – 11:45am
- Dr. Martha Cohen School Monday – Thursday 8:28am – 3:10pm
Friday 8:28am – 12:20pm
- St. Marguerite School Monday – Friday 8:15am – 2:40pm
While these are the busiest times each day for children crossing, please be aware that New Brighton Elementary and St. Marguerite School have Kindergarten classes in the morning and afternoon. Older students from Dr. Martha Cohen are also able to leave the school grounds at lunchtime. Please keep this in mind when driving between 11:00am – 1:15pm Monday to Friday. Our community thanks you for your help with this.
Fundraising for Schools
Parent’ Associations fundraise for playgrounds, band programs and more school programs. The New Brighton Elementary Parent’s Association successfully fundraised for the new K – 4 playground that was put in this year (2020). This is their website were you can check their activity and contact them. Any ideas or help is highly appreciated.
