Canyon Heights Academy parents are not required to volunteer; however parent involvement is a key element to building both our parent community and our school. The spirit and sense of community that pervades Canyon Heights comes from our parents’ willingness to support Canyon Heights activities.
Our parents fill a wide-range of volunteer positions at Canyon Heights. Not only as a way for parents to give meaningful and significant service to the school, it also provides the setting for building our parent community. CHAPA and its committees play an important role in the many activities and events throughout the year. Below is a list of committees and a brief description of their purpose:
