Friends of Canty is a parent run organization guided by a desire to strengthen, encourage, and support the educational and social experiences of Canty students. Through various fundraising activities and social events, Friends of Canty raises proceeds to benefit the school community with, and not limited to, programming, needed materials, and a variety of engaging social events catering to students and families. Volunteers are a vital component required for Friends of Canty to succeed, and all are invited to participate in as many happenings as possible!
Friends of Canty exists to:
Foster positivity within the school community
To advocate respectful communication between students, families, teachers, and support staff in order to create lasting relationships
To organize fundraising and school events which serve to maintain positive connections within the Canty community
To ensure that planning of fundraising and/or events is inclusive and nondiscriminatory to give all children and families the opportunity to feel welcomed, wanted, and heard.
Youth: to remember that the group exists to bring joy and fun to the students of Canty and not to fulfill the needs of only one.
All participating volunteers at events should understand and commit to helping all students fairly and not to discriminate against or favor particular students. Volunteers must also agree to follow the specific guidelines and rules given before each scheduled event, and all volunteers need to be at least a Level 2 volunteer.
