On this page you will find information from St Bernadette CSC regarding upcoming meetings, minutes and other relevant information. We encourage you to check out the links, read our information and attend meetings to keep informed about any new educational policies, fundraising initiatives, volunteer programs and much, much more.

Meetings are held at 7:00 pm at St. Bernadette CES In-Person and Virtually. All parents are welcome to attend, even if you are not an elected parent representative. Our meetings generally last between 1 to 2 hours. Our objectives include helping to create and maintain an environment which is conducive to improving student achievement, enhancing communication with parents, teacher and students, and developing a common vision for our school.
