What is the PTA?
Parents are an integral part of the school community in Powell River. We provide the leadership needed to organize activities such as fundraisers, social events, and community building programs. The PTA is a formal organization composed of parents, teachers, and staff that is intended to facilitate parental participation in the school. We act under the guidance and support of the PEC.
How can parents get involved at Assumption School?
Anyone who is a parent or guardian of a student at Assumption School is a member of the PTA and is welcome at all meetings. Parents are encouraged to take part in all activities in the school. Volunteer opportunities are plenty as well as in-class support throughout your child's educational career. Meetings are held once a month at the school. The PTA is parent organized and managed. All executive members volunteer themselves and are elected if more than one parent expresses interest.
What does the PTA do?
We organize fundraisers like movie nights, hot lunches, pull tab sales at BINGO, poinsettia sales, spring gift basket sales, and many more. We support students' education and faith to maximize learning opportunities for individual and school growth. The money we raise provides financial support for school programs, equipment needs (larger items include our school playground) and recreational activities like Fun Day.
The parents at Assumption School are hard-working people committee to helping our school be successful. We maintain that our kids are worth it and we invite all parents to become involved in this worthwhile committee.
