The purpose of the Parents’ Association (PA) is to promote a sense of close community, cooperation and communication among the administration, faculty, staff, parents (or guardians) and students at St. Catherine’s School. The PA provides volunteer support for student activities, fundraising projects, and the welcoming of new families. It offers parent education programs and opportunities for social interaction, some of which are coordinated with the St. Christopher’s community.
The membership of the PA consists of all parents or guardians of the students enrolled at St. Catherine’s, the head of the school and appointed representatives. There are no dues or membership fees. The PA Board consists of a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, two representatives from each school division, and chairs and specified members of standing committees. It meets several times a year and parents are invited to attend. Board members are nominated by the nominating committee and elected by the Board at large each spring. The president of the PA serves on the St. Catherine’s Board of Governors.
