About CATSS

What we are

CATSS (Canyon Association to Support the School) is a fully tax deductible 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, tax deductible volunteer organization focused on community building and fundraising to support our school. We work in conjunction with CEF (Canyon Education Foundation) to plan fundraising events and help facilitate parent involvement in the school community. We meet monthly, and our membership consists of faculty and parents or guardians of children attending Canyon School (that’s you!). We look forward to your participation!

Who we are

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.

What we do

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. Check out the How to Volunteer page for more information about getting involved. Please attend a monthly meeting to offer suggestions or find other ways to get involved.

Please feel free to contact a CATSS officer or a member of the executive board directly. We will respond as soon as possible. Thank you for visiting us online.
