Parent Teacher Association
Welcome to the PTA pages.
The PTA works to strengthen the bond and partnership between the school and the parents for the benefit of the students at Canadian Academy. The PTA has been a part of the school community since 1920. We are proud to help foster community spirit and create opportunities for social and fundraising events, and provide venues for the expression of views on matters of general interest to parents, faculty and students.
PTA meetings are open to all members. All parents of CA students, and all teachers, are members. Meetings are generally held online, on the 1st Thursday of the month, at 9:00 am. Please drop in and get involved!

Are you looking for ways to be more involved with our CA community, as well as support the direction of the school? Our PTA is looking to fill several key positions for the 2021-2022 school year. If you are interested in a following position, please contact Anna Woxstrom at firstname.lastname@example.org or Andrea Bickel at email@example.com for more information.
1) Vice President
The vice president steps in for the president when needed and is a key part of the PTA executive committee. The vice president oversees our CA International Food and Fun Fair, spearheading the team and all volunteers working to help with the PTA's largest-- and most fun-- fundraising event!
The PTA secretary is a part of the PTA executive committee and responsible for taking minutes at our PTA meetings.
Oversees the PTA finances in cooperation with the finance office at CA.
Are you graphically/visually talented? Responsible for making posters and designing information folders, as well as taking photos for PTA events when possible.
5) New Parent Welcome
Responsible for the New Parent Welcome event that usually takes place in the P&G Black Box Theater in the first few weeks of the new school year. The purpose of the meeting is to provide useful information about CA and our community for new families. This position coordinates between the PTA officers, our Parent Partners, and the school Leadership Team.
6) New Teachers welcome
The PTA warmly welcomes new faculty by organizing welcome baskets before the school year begins. These are a big hit with our newest faculty members! This key member oversees the organization and acquisition of the welcome baskets.
7) Halloween Party
The PTA organizes a Halloween Party for our elementary school students every year with a lot of fun activities in our P&G Black Box Theatre. The coordinator communicates with the grade level volunteers to ensure our youngest have a fun time!
While all of these positions might seem overwhelming, our PTA is incredibly supportive and each of us is quick to lend a hand. The PTA members currently holding the position are available to share their resources and provide greater detail. We encourage you (and even you and a friend) to volunteer for any of the positions-- we look forward to hearing from you.
