CSPC News- St. Demetrius' Parent Council


The Catholic School Parent Council

The School Board has changed the name of the Catholic School Advisory Council (CSAC) to The Catholic School Parent Council (CSPC).  The role of the Parent Council is to provide a vehicle for parents and guardians to participate in the advisory and decision making process of their own school.  The new regulations governing school councils help us to realize our shared goal of improving student achievement through enhanced accountability of the Catholic education system to parents and the community.  Every year we plan and execute exciting initiatives and events for our school.  These events give the opportunity to supplement and enhance our students' academic, athletic, and spiritual school experiences.  The way we achieve these goals are through the funds generated from Activity fees, Pizza Lunches, Coffee Sundays, and Lunch Lady.

​These monies help pay for activities such as:
- St. Nicholas' visit to our school
- Pysanky supplies
- Malanka
- Graduation costs
- First Holy Communion costs
- Presentations by authors, musicians, artists....
- Fun Day activities
- Transportation for Track and Field and Cross Country
- Upgrades to our musical instruments
- Upgrades to our gym equipment
- And other activities that run throughout the school year


Thank you to all the parents and community members who volunteer their time, because without you none of what we try to achieve would be possible.
Thank you to those who came out to volunteer at:  Terry Fox, Bazaar, St. Nicholas preparations, Malanka, Field trips, Scientist in School, Pizza Lunches, Pysanky​.  Again without you we could not succeed with what we do.


There are a number of students in our school that have life threatening allergies to certain nuts.  A few years back it was proposed and passed that no baked goods would be brought to school to celebrate birthdays to help prevent any severe allergic reactions.  Since then we have received some questions as to why council can sell cookies during pizza lunches.  The reason we are able to provide this option is  because we have researched cookie companies and only use a company that makes the cookies in a peanut/nut free zone making this a 100% safe product to give to all of our students.


We would like to thank the St. Demetrius Ukrainian Credit Union for donating the agendas for all our students at St. Demetrius School.  For many years the credit union has paid for this service.  Many thanks.


Our next meeting is being held on Tuesday, May 16th, 2016 at 7 pm. in the school library.  We would love to have you come out and join us.
