Home and School Association

Contact: SPC School

The Home and School Association is the parent organization for the school. The goal of this organization is to provide opportunities for service to the school community in keeping with the mission statement of the school. This association seeks to cooperate with the pastor, the administration, school board, and faculty in providing a Catholic education for the students.

It operates within the framework of all policies and guidelines of the school and the Archdiocesan Office of Catholic Education. The specific functions of this organization are: 

  • To promote more effective communication between the school and the home in order to provide continuity of the students' education
  • To sponsor well-planned programs which will encourage the religious, moral, physical, mental, social, and educational growth of the students, the parents, and the faculty
  • To create a greater appreciation of Catholic education in its broadest sense
  • To provide and coordinate lay assistance for the school
  • To assist in fundraising for educational items not funded by the school budget

Home and School members are represented by a five-member Board. Board members serve a two-year term, not to exceed one term. We encourage all parents to attend Home & School meetings which take place every other month in the Parish Life Center meeting room.
