Dear Families of Saint Peter School,
Thank you for your interest in the 2019-2020 Saint Peter School Parent Association! We are delighted to connect and reconnect with you as we support and celebrate Saint Peter School.
Our school community is diverse and thriving and our goal is to reflect its positive spirit in the work of the Parents Association (PA). While the main function of the PA is to support the Advancement Office with fundraisers, we are also here to foster camaraderie and strengthen the Saint Peter community as we work together to provide the best school and educational experience for our students. We do this through our major fundraising events (Oktoberfest, the Annual Gala and Golf Tournament) and also via promoting community involvement (supporting the DCF Wonderfund Project), teacher appreciation (hosting staff breakfasts and luncheon, and securing supplies for the classrooms), and school spirit (assisting with the School BBQ, International Night, and Field Day).
We need your help to guarantee the success of these events and enrichment activities. All parents are automatically members of the PA, and your involvement will make a difference to both you and your child(ren)—and it will have an enormous impact on the entire Saint Peter community.
PA meetings are typically held in the morning on the first Wednesday of every month in the parish center. All are welcome to join us as we discuss and organize current initiatives. Even if you are unable to attend our monthly meetings, we welcome your interest and involvement in any way!
We are excited to be co-chairing the PA this school year and grateful to be working with you as a community of parents, students, and staff to make the school year memorable and rewarding for all students. Let’s work together to make Saint Peter School the best place for our children to grow and learn!
