Deshaye CSCC Board 2018-2019

Who Are We?
The Deshaye Catholic School Community Council (CSCC) is a group of elected or appointed parents, community members and school staff. The CSCC helps understand, support, and promote the school's plans for continuing improvement. Through dialogue, volunteers, and fundraising, the CSCC works with the school staff to achieve their identified learning goals for the school year. The CSCC is also the official parent voice for the school community with the School Board.
Deshaye CSCC oversees several fundraising opportunities throughout the school year. The number and type of fundraisers are reviewed each year depending on the targets and funding goals determined by the needs of the school and community. The monies raised be the CSCC are distributed between a variety of school activities. Past activities the CSCC have supported include:
Funds for specialty learning opportunities provided by teachers or the Community Coordinator, i.e. Babysitting course, cooking class, the STEAM-focused Makerspace The Deshaye CSCC are the overseers of the Before & After School Childcare contract at the school. The Deshaye CSCC meet once a month to listen and discuss the various agenda items brought forward by staff, CSCC members, Christ the King representatives, and interested parents. All interested Deshaye parents are invited to join any of our meetings to listen and participate in the sharing process. Please check the school website for the date and time of the next CSCC meeting. We hope to see you there!
