Parent Involvement Week: October 24 – 30, 2015.

The Toronto Catholic District School Board is launching first Parent Involvement Week. This initiative is an opportunity to recognize, celebrate and enhance the important role that parents play at both the school and Board level. Educational research has consistently pointed to the positive effects that parent engagement has on student achievement and well-being. The TCDSB has partnered with the two parent organizations--the Catholic Parent Involvement Committee (CPIC) and the Ontario Association of Parents in Catholic Education (OAPCE – Toronto)--to co-host a number of events that highlight the important role of parents in our schools, as well as to provide opportunities for continued involvement, professional development and net- working. Let us all work together for the success of our students!
