Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools encourages and welcomes the involvement of parents in our school communities. We recognize and support parents in their role as the “first educators of their children.” There are many ways for parents to volunteer in our schools and encourage you to explore the range of opportunities with your child’s teacher or principal.

The School Act emphasizes the roles and responsibilities of all of the partners and stakeholders in education including: students, parents, teachers, administrators, as well as, school boards and trustees. The Act identifies parental responsibilities noting that “Identification of parental roles and responsibilities regarding their children’s learning signals the important role parents play in their children’s education, and supports greater cooperation and communication between parents and school personnel.”
