Parents Association

 

Introduction

The Parents Association leads community-building and fundraising initiatives, creating a spirit of volunteerism and generosity at St. Patrick’s. Every parent is a member of the Parents Association and everything we do supports our mission. To learn more about the Parents Association's annual gifts to the school, click here.

All parents are encouraged to attend the the Parents Association General Meetings. They are a great opportunity to hear from Head of School Peter Barrett and to ask any questions/raise any concerns you may have.  All are welcome!  The two General Meetings of the 2015-2016 school year will be on Tuesday, October 20 and Tuesday, April 5 at 8:30 am.

Mission Statement

The Parents Association of St. Patrick's Episcopal Day School strives to involve all of our families in nurturing our diverse and welcoming community, supporting excellence in the education of all of our children, and creating a spirit of volunteerism and generosity that contributes to the life and vitality of the Day School. Guided by our Executive Committee, and in partnership with the broader school community, the Parents Association leads community-building and fundraising initiatives. These efforts enable us to support the professional development and recognition of our faculty and staff, to serve as a resource to school families, and to enhance the spirit and character of St. Patrick's.

 

Support the PA!

There are so many ways to support the PA, especially during the holiday season.  The first way is through the Amazon Associates Program. Click here to shop Amazon and up to 10% of the price of your purchases will go to St. Patrick’s. You must use this link to receive the donation, as the donations will not apply by logging in directly to your Amazon account--so bookmark it today!

New this year is the Scrip program.  Shopwithscrip.com will allow you to buy retail gift cards through your new ShopWithScrip account and a small percentage goes directly back to St. Patrick's. Using your free ShopwithScrip account, you will be able to order retail gift cards anytime you are connected with the internet. St. Patrick's will receive a small percentage of every card you purchase. Shop Starbucks, Amazon, Shell, Safeway, and a host of other retailers--or reload existing cards using Scrips.

  • Create a ShopwithScrip account. Go to www.shopwithscrip.com and click on the register button at the top of the page. Next, click the join a scrip program button.  You will need to enter the organization's unique enrollment code: 13F622414669L, which allows the ShopWithScrip system to link your account activity with our organization.

Donations will be used by the Parents Association for gifts to the school, and for Faculty and Staff Summer Travel and Study Grant Awards.
