On behalf of the St. Paul’s Parents Association, I’d like to welcome all of our new and returning families for the 2016-2017 school year. I am excited and honored to serve as your Parents Association President for the 2016-2017 school year. Jude and I have an 11 year-old daughter, Bella, entering the 6th grade.
Good news! As part of the St. Paul’s community, you are automatically a member of the Parents Association! The Parents Association provides a social network and fun activities for the entire St. Paul’s community. We encourage you to join us, as parental involvement in school life is an important factor in our success in enhancing St. Paul’s through volunteerism and events! We have countless opportunities to be involved, and any amount of time you offer is very much needed and appreciated.
We invite and welcome you to our Parents Association meetings held throughout the year. The meetings are full of fun, food, and great opportunities to connect with, and get to know other parents, while sharing ideas to advance our common mission and plan. The bonus is that free childcare is available!
We are excited about new and old fundraisers for the upcoming school year, including Yankee Candle, Christmas Greens, Scrip Gift Cards, and Box Tops.
It is a joy to see where the Parents Association fundraising dollars are used each year. With this money, we sponsor events such as Opening Coffee held the first day of school, City Park Fun Night in September, and Teacher Appreciation Week held in the spring. The Parents Association also contributed to the Middle School Playground! We are committed to help fundraise the funds necessary to install canopies to provide shade and sun protection for outdoor playtime.
The St. Paul’s staff, parents and children create a truly extraordinary community. I am looking forward to another fabulous year. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email for anything at all.
