What Do We Do?
We talk about everything and anything that is important to the Castor Valley community, as well as raise funds to provide necessities that are no longer in school budgets. We have an opportunity to provide input into our children’s learning environment, work together on programs and events, raise issues, ask questions and stay up-to-date on everything important and new at our school.
What Do School Councils Do?
The main purpose of school councils is to work towards the improvement of student achievement and to enhance communication between the school and the school community. This is accomplished by making recommendations to your school principal and the school district on significant education issues, and by planning activities that support the active participation of parents/guardians and your school community.

Why Should I Attend a Meeting?
This is your forum to support your children and their education. If you have concerns that you would like the parent community to address, suggestions that you think could make things better, or just want to listen and learn what’s happening with our school, then you should attend our next meeting!
Research shows that children do better in school when parents are involved in their education. They have better attendance, lower dropout rates and higher rates of achievement.
Every month (except December & March), the Castor Valley Elementary School Council (CVESC) meets in our school library. These meetings are open to everyone in the Castor Valley Elementary School community (parents, teachers, staff, students and people from our local community). We invite your participation and input.
