The Parents’ Association is an important part of St. Peter’s School. Each parent is automatically a member, and there are no dues. The Parents’ Association serves to marshal the efforts of the parents in fundraising events, assists the School in carrying out various programs, and plans several social gatherings each year.
The officers of the Parents’ Association are the President, Secretary, Treasurer, and 3 Vice Presidents for each division. Officers meet on a regular basis to plan events and help support the chairpersons of fundraising events. Vice Presidents of each division support class parents by providing an orientation in the fall, and communicate often throughout the year.
The School is ever grateful to the Parents’ Association for the vitality and commitment it brings to the School and school functions. Free childcare is available in the afternoon for parents who are meeting or volunteering. “In this complex world, it takes more than a good school to educate children. And it takes more than a good home. It takes these two major educational institutions working together.” Dorothy Rich, author of Mega Skills®
