Parents play an important role in the education of their children. Strong family engagement is central to promoting the healthy intellectual, physical, social-emotional, and spiritual development of children. Parents who are involved in preparing their children for school and who support their academic achievement in elementary and beyond ensure their children’s successful educational experiences.
At Holy Ghost School, students + parents + teachers = great partners. Parent participation is fundamental for students’ success. Our combined partnership and commitment will help in the development in your child’s skills, knowledge and faith. Our parent-teacher relationship has a significant impact on students’ academic and developmental outcomes. Here at Holy Ghost, our parent community is very active and engaged in all aspects of school life. If you are interested in becoming more involved (ex. volunteering), please contact the school office or your child’s teacher.
Parent advisory council (PAC)
Did you know that all parents or guardians of a student attending Holy Ghost School are members of the Parent Advisory Council? That’s right! If you are looking for a way to get involved in our school community and are willing to share your time, talents and ideas, we would love to see you at our next meeting! Your participation on the PAC is also a great way to earn volunteer hours!
Holy Ghost School participates in a variety of fundraisers throughout the school year. These range from selling chocolates to organizing a Gala event. Proceeds from these fundraisers help pay for a variety of things such as new books, field trips, and new equipment for students to use.
Parents can opt to purchase hot/cold lunches for their child(ren) every Wednesday. The lunches are provided and individually delivered by Charlee’s Catering. Order forms are sent to home with students at the end of each month to order for the upcoming month. For a copy of this month’s order form, click here. A schedule of this month’s hot lunches is available on the Calendar.
As parents and guardians we understand that life can be very busy. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous. You can feel great about being an active participant in your child’s school community, but will also see firsthand that your time invest now will reap tremendous benefits later.
