Melissa Bevan - Chair of DCPIC

As we enter the final few weeks of the 2020/2021 school year, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on all of the events and celebrations we have had over the past few months.
Recently, we celebrated National Volunteer Week from April 24-30, 2022 and the committee acknowledged and thanked our dedicated recipients of the 2022-2023 Distinguished Catholic Volunteer Awards. I want to personally thank all the recipients for their contributions to their school communities. We love our volunteers!
We also held two virtual family events with Mad Science in April and May 2022. These STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) workshops were highly requested from the DCPIC parent/guardian survey last spring. These engaging, fun workshops were attending by over 600 families!
The Annual DCPIC Parent/Guardian Survey has been distributed, and further information can be found in an article below. The results of the survey will help the committee determine strategic directions for the 2022-2023 school year.
On behalf of DCPIC, I want to thank all parents, guardians and caregivers for their continued partnership. Our Catholic School Councils have been continuing to engage with their school communities in new and creative ways.
I hope that you all have a safe, healthy and happy summer! DCPIC is looking forward to sharing new resources, events and activities with families in the fall.

Yours in Faith,
