Cartwright Community School Advisory Council

Cartwright Community School Advisory Council

This Community group first organized in 1982 with a purpose of fostering closer relationships between staff, parents, children and the community.  This council has been valuable in helping our rural students experience a wider variety of personalities, events and activities.

CCSAC runs various fundraising activities throughout the year, a major one being the Community "Birthday" Calandars.

With money raised from fundraising, the CCSAC financially assists many school activiites.  They have been involved with a number of programs over the years including: Artists in the School; Band; Book Fairs; Milk Program; School Photos; Curl Canada; Prairie Theatre Exchange; Encounters Canada; Magazine Sales; Swim Program; Driver Education Program ; and they also sponsored a Library Assistant for the school.

CCSAC meets monthly from September to May (usually the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:30 pm at the school).  Generally there is a parent on the council to represent each grade.  All parents are encouraged and invited to attend the meetings and take part.
