Family Engagement

Saint Columbkille Partnership School strongly believes that for a child's optimal education there must be a trusting, collaborative and working relationship between the home and the school.

Saint Columbkille Partnership School believes family involvement and volunteering increases student achievement, behavior and self-esteem. The school benefits from your talent, time and effort and you, the parent, provide a very important community service for your children and their peers. There are many opportunities to engage with the school, from volunteering and serving on committees, to attending parent coffees, participating in school fundraisers and following us on social media.

Volunteer opportunities include Christmas at Saint Col’s, Restaurant Fundraisers, BC Race to Educate, the Book Fair, Holiday Lunches, the Multicultural Potluck and Field Day. All positions are filled on a first come, first served basis. Some people are unable to work the day of the events, and those volunteers can get involved with event preparations leading up to an event. Some pre-event tasks include picking up miscellaneous items, shopping, copying, distributing flyers, cutting and stapling raffle tickets and stuffing envelopes, among others.

For those who volunteer with the school, families are recognized through the Family Service Program. Families who complete 25 Family Service Hours or more will receive a $300 credit per family towards the following year’s tuition. See below for instructions on how to log your hours in Renweb.

  • Regularly Occurring Events

    Early Release – Students in Grades 1 – 8 are dismissed at 1:05 p.m. and students in PK – K2 are dismissed at 1:15 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month. Students in after-school proceed straight to the after-school program and have their usual pickup time.

    Monthly Mass – Most of the school (with the exception of Pre-K and K1) attend Mass together on a monthly basis. Dates are published in the school calendar. All families are invited to attend any Mass or prayer service at Saint Columbkille.

    Parent Coffees – Each week, administrators and/or teaching staff offer their time to meet with interested parents to discuss topics of interest according to grade level or subject matter. Each week has a designation, i.e., “First grade coffee” or “Music program coffee”, and parents can attend as they are able. Parent Coffees are also a great way for parents to meet and connect.

    Social Fundraisers – For these events, we invite you to enjoy a night with the STCPS community! These include Launch, Inside Playground, Adult Paint Nights, and Trivia Night. These events give a portion of the money earned to our school.

    Restaurant Fundraisers – For these events, we invite you to take the night off from cooking! Approximately every other month there is a restaurant designated as a STCPS fundraising restaurant. Families can opt to dine in or take out food from that restaurant that day; the restaurant, in turn, gives STCPS a portion of the money earned from STCPS families.

    Spirit Days – Approximately one Friday per month is termed a “Spirit Day.” A charity or cause is chosen for each Spirit Day at the beginning of the year; on Spirit Day, students may dress out of uniform and can choose to contribute $1 or more for that charity.

  • Family-to-Family Resource Meetings
    Who? Family-to-Family Resource Meetings are open to all parents/caregivers of Saint Columbkille Partnership School students.

    For the 2019-20 school year, there will be two coordinators of the Family-to-Family Resource Meetings: Katie Donnino (parent of grade 3 and 5 girls) and Kati Delahanty (parent of Pre-K, grade 1 and grade 3 children).

    What? Parents/caregivers are invited to meet 5 times during the 2019-2020 school year.  We are calling these Family-to-Family Resource Meetings.

    We have set up an email for ease of communication:  familyresourcecoordinators@stcps.org. The Family-to-Family Resource Coordinators (Katie and Kati) will have sole access to the Family-to-Family Resource email. Parents/caregivers can email the Coordinators any time during the year with questions and suggestions, and the Coordinators will point them to the right people (or answer the questions themselves if they are able). The agenda items for the Family-to-Family Resource Meetings may also come from these emails (if so desired, we will respect anonymity as we craft these).

    Notes will be taken at each meeting and will be shared with the larger parent community as well as to the school administration so that all can learn from the conversations.

    Why? The purpose of these meetings is to offer another opportunity for parents/caregivers to meet together for the following reasons:

    – To strengthen fellowship within the Saint Columbkille community by offering a time for parents to gather outside of scheduled school functions.

    – To share questions, answers, or suggestions about school norms, events, etc.;

    – To share resources and information about the school as well as happenings within the local community.

    The Family-to-Family Resource Meetings are designed to address some of the requests and comments that have come up in the responses to the annual Parent Survey related to strengthening the community of adults and improving communication between the school and families. To that end, please also visit the Facebook page:  Saint Columbkille Parents. If you would like to join this group, please send an email to the Family-to-Family Resource Coordinators at

    familyresourcecoordinators@stcps.org and they can add you to the group.

    When & Where? The first of five meetings will take place on Monday, October 7 from 8-9 a.m. in the school library. We will survey parents/caregivers after the first meeting to determine future dates and times.
