Although parents are not required to volunteer at Canyon Heights, service to the school community is a key element in forming our community and building our school. Canyon Heights' excellence and success is due in no small measure to the great generosity of our parents. The unique spirit and sense of community that pervades Canyon Heights comes from the willingness of our parents to give of themselves in service to our children and to each other. Over 75% of our parents serve on at least one of the following committees.
This committee is entrusted with coordinating parent participation in all-school parties (such All Saints), school social events (such as the Fall Kickoff), school programs (such as the social that follows the Christmas Program and Spring Play) and provides input and assistance to the school on selecting and coordinating after school programs. The events committee also coordinates and organizes school and parent social events.
This committee oversees the Spring Gala and Auction. Areas of work include item solicitation, donor solicitation, decorations, item arrangement and the development of the program.
