CSPC - Catholic School Parent Council

With approval from the Board, the Catholic School Advisory Council (CSAC) recently underwent a name change to Catholic School Parents Council (CPSC). News items & resource documents uploaded prior to September 1st, 2015 may have their titles changed to reflect Catholic School Parents Council (CSPC), the text contained within the documents and pages may still contain the name Catholic School Advisory Council (CSAC).  Please note that these two titles are synonymous.

Notre Dame's CSPC (Catholic School Parent Council) provides a forum through which parents and the community can have a voice in the high school education of their daughters. Our CSPC meetings take place in the library at Notre Dame approximately six times per calendar year. Members consist of school administration (Principal, Vice Principals, Teacher representation, Student Council members) together with parents who want to understand some of the everyday issues/events taking place at Notre Dame. 

While elementary CSPC often has a huge attendance, at the secondary school level, there seems to be a drop off in parent involvement for obvious age related reasons. That being said, what a great way to have some additional insight into the daily life of your teenager! 

We try to keep meetings to approximately one hour and we discuss and debate agenda items which are submitted in advance. These include everything from building issues and administration requests to cafeteria questions and uniform concerns-- a huge variety of topics of interest to both administration and parents alike. 

CSPC is not a forum for fundraising and there is no obligation or pressure to attend or participate in all meetings.  We encourage you to review the upcoming agenda to determine if there is a topic of interest to you or your daughter.  Minutes from each meeting will be posted on the Notre Dame website following Council approval. 

Your daughter is awarded a dress down day the day after each meeting you attend  our way of thanking you for your time and saying, we really loved to see you!

Meeting dates are set for the year so please check the school calendar and join us whenever you can. 

Council Members:
Chair: Rosa Morphy
Vice Chair: Lenny Diaz
Treasurer: Christine Eady
Secretary: Julie Malichen-Snyder
OAPCE Rep: Deborah McNorgan
