Parent Groups

Parent Support Group (PSG)

The PSG is an open & social group made up of a volunteer executive, staff advisors, and YOU - the parents. Meetings are held just once per month, usually the third Tuesday at 6:30.

As a group, we are dedicated to:

  • Small project fundraising
  • Helping our students and teachers
  • Organizing fun events for our school
  • Providing valuable feedback to our school council

You are always welcome to attend the meetings. Your input is valuable and we encourage you to take an active role in your child's school. If you are unable to attend the meetings but would like to be involved in fundraising or in some other capacity, please contact our volunteer co-ordinator, Pamela Lovering.

Dads' Group

As dads we have different ways to be involved at the school. The group does a lot of manly things like build stuff and cook meat on a grill!

Being involved as dads shows our kids our commitment to their education. All males (grandpas too!) who have students in the school are welcome and encouraged to join our Google group to receive notices of meetings and projects.

Rooted in Faith

Rooted in Faith

With the beginning of a new school year and the excitement of a brand new building it is of upmost importance to continue a tradition started by school parents twenty five years ago.

Praying for our students, staff, families, buildings and curriculum is at the root of our faith, and we believe truly determines our direction and progress as we journey together.

We invite all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and parishioners to come and join us in praying for our Catholic schools. Our intent is to keep it casual and prompt. We will meet shortly after drop off at 8:50am, for 30 minutes. We will have scripture reading, short meditation and prayers of intention.

Praying for our children and their caregivers can certainly be done from home and we encourage all to continue to do so;  but praying together as a community of faith is powerful and a great blessing to us all.

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.

Matthew 18:20
