Parent Involvement

Parent Volunteers 950x350


Leadership


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.


School Board


The School Board is an advisory board to the Pastor and Principal, and focuses on matters related to enrollment, finance and strategic planning. The board meets on a monthly basis and works between meetings in smaller committees to pursue yearly goals. These goals are shared with the school community in a letter to parents every fall.

A nominating committee seeks new School Board members each spring. Members typically serve a three-year term. Please contact the School Board President by May 1 with nominations (self-nominations are accepted).

2019-2020 School Board Members: Erin Leddon (President), Laural Bischoff, Nathan Clark, Lisa Dykstra, Larry Eiben, Katie Gardy, Chris Harvey, Jerry Hoffman, Laura Holton, Mark Marinacci, Mike Nolan and Lauryn Peterson.

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. 

Development Committee


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.

Volunteer

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.

  • Leadership Committees: School Board, Parent School Organization (PSO), Development Committee, Booster Club
  • Fundraisers: Annual Fund, Angel Night, Irish Fest, Run 'N' Walk, Rummage Sale, Progressive Dinner
  • Classroom: Room Parents, Holiday Parties, In-Class Readers
  • Other: Teacher Appreciation, Team Coaches, Yearbook, Field Trips, Book Fair and more!
Volunteering is a cornerstone of our community.
