A variety of parent-led organizations exist to welcome, include and govern. Members use their talents, gifts and insights for the good of St. A’s community, and to promote the mission of the school and goals of a Catholic education.
The School Board participates in decision-making, and is made up of elected members who advise the pastor and principal. The Board’s responsibility can be categorized into six areas: to participate in and encourage strategic planning; to develop and defend policy; to offer financial advice; to evaluate itself periodically; to participate in the selection process of the principal (its executive officer); to serve as a good public relations source. The School Board meets monthly throughout the year. Those wishing to suggest agenda items should contact the chair or the principal.
Parent School Organization
The Parent School Organization (PSO) promotes parental support of school programs; bridges communication between the school and parents; welcomes; and promotes a vibrant sense of community. There are a variety of roles and opportunities within the PSO. Meetings take place monthly. All school parents are members of the PSO and are welcome to attend meetings, and encouraged to volunteer for activities that lift the school.
The Development Committee oversees all fundraising and development activities, and coordinates events sponsored to benefit St. Athanasius parish and school. Members — including representatives from the School Board, PSO, Booster Club, and all parents — work collaboratively with the pastor and principal to coordinate the Annual Fund, fundraising events and other development activities.
Booster Club is comprised of parents and alumni who promote St. Athanasius School’s athletic program. The club fosters school spirit and raises funds for athletic-related projects in keeping with the school’s mission.
St. A’s welcomes all gifts of time. We rely on our talented parents to contribute to the success of our academic and co-curricular programs, fundraisers and leadership councils. A variety of ways — and levels of commitment — exist for parents to get involved. They are also great opportunities to connect with one another.
Volunteering is a cornerstone of our community.
