Message from the Chair of the Central Committee for Catholic School Councils:
Welcome back to another school year. My name is Genevieve Rodney and it is my pleasure to be the Chair of the Central Committee for Catholic School Councils. I sincerely hope that this year will enable each school council to become actively involved in the life of their school communities. I would encourage every parent to become involved in the various opportunities that each of our Catholic schools and Catholic school councils present.
I am a strong believer in parent involvement and social responsibility. I am an advocate for student achievement and actively promote literacy and numeracy within our Catholic school system.
As we work together to better understand and promote student achievement, we enrich and support our school communities.
As our students move through our Catholic system they are guided to meet the Catholic graduate expectations. Our system has a strong faith history which incorporates the traditions of the Catholic Church and the gospel values. Though our students live in an ever-changing world of media and technology, it is our faith and human connections that bind us together. The need for a partnership between the home, school and parish has never been more important.
CCCSC was established in September, 1997. Our goal has been and continues to be to encourage and promote parent involvement within our Catholic schools. We facilitate the dissemination of information and promote communication among our Catholic school councils, schools, the Board and parishes.
Throughout the past 14 years, CCCSC has provided support to school councils in order to create, organize and maintain effective and successful Catholic School Councils at each school. We are extremely proud of the Catholic School Council Resource Handbook and CD which can be found at each of our schools. We would refer Catholic School Council members to consult this document in order to understand the workings of your Council.
I am proud of the work and efforts of our CCCSC committee members, but am even more proud of the work that you do as volunteers and Catholic School Council members within our elementary and secondary schools in Dufferin-Peel.
Thank you for the ongoing gift of your time, talents and contributions.
Genevieve Rodney,Chair, CCCSC
