Catholic School Council
Our Catholic School Council needs your voice, your input, your contribution to make St. Dominic a better for all students!
The St. Dominic School Council is a group of parents who meet with the Principal and staff representatives about once a month. The School Council organizes fundraising activities, plans special events, and provides input on topics such as the code of conduct, budget priorities, and school goals. Any St. Dominic parent or guardian can join the School Council.
Interested in being a school volunteer? We would love to have you!
Our parent and community volunteers help our students learn in the classroom, Gym, Learning Commons and on trips. We greatly value the assistance and expertise of our volunteers. In our ongoing effort to provide a safe, secure learning and working environment for our staff and students, we have an application process for prospective volunteers, which includes an application form and a current Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) from the local police. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit the OCSB Volunteer Webpage.
