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!

Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) plays a vital role in strengthening the bond between the school and our parents for the benefit of our students. Upon enrolment, all families are considered to be active members.

Our PTA generally meets the first Thursday of every month and all members are invited to attend. By fostering community spirit, creating opportunities for social and fundraising events, as well as providing a forum for the expression of views of general interest to our students, faculty, and community, our PTA plays a vital role in the health of our school and communities.

Specifically, our PTA supports or oversees many events that take place throughout the year, including our Parent Partner program, our International Food and Fun Fair, the Falcon Store where CA goods can be purchased, and our Booster Club to name a few.

Some events sponsored by our PTA are fundraisers-- with the money contributing to and the supporting of events, programs, and equipment. This past year, our PTA partly sponsored our new sound system that is being installed in our renovated atrium. We look forward to hearing it this October.

There are many ways to be involved-- by joining a committee, sharing an idea or resource, or simply attending a monthly meeting, the PTA welcomes your participation. Our first meeting will be online on Thursday, September 9th at 9:00 a.m.

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 or Andrea Bickel at 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!

2) Secretary
The PTA secretary is a part of the PTA executive committee and responsible for taking minutes at our PTA meetings.

3) Treasurer
Oversees the PTA finances in cooperation with the finance office at CA.

4) Communication
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.
