CATSS (Canyon Association To Support the School) is a non-profit volunteer organization focused on community building and organizing fundraising events to support Canyon School, a California public school located in Canyon, California, serving grades K-8. The organization was unofficially formed more than 15 years ago. Back then, our main objective was to develop community relations among school families. After registering as an official non-profit entity in 2001, we expanded our purpose to school fundraising events while continuing to promote community relations.
Our membership consists of any parent, guardian, or immediate family member of any child enrolled in Canyon School, plus faculty members, and Canyon community members. Our executive board consists of five volunteer parents.
We coordinate many school events such as the welcome breakfast and coffee mornings, the Halloween celebration, the all-school ice skating trip, and the all-school picnic to mention a few. We support other important events in the school such as the annual plays, the graduation ceremonies, and staff appreciations. On an annual basis, CATSS raises funds to support the above activities, and in conjunction with CEF (Canyon Education Fund) we raise money to help support the school’s general fund. More information about fundraising can be found on the Canyon School Fundraisers page. Check out the How to Volunteer page for more information about getting involved. Please attend a monthly meeting (check calendar) to offer suggestions or find other ways to get involved.
