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 childrens’ 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.


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.
