The Home and School Association encourages an understanding between parents and teachers, assists parents in achieving their mission as educators of their children through information programs, and helps foster and maintain a greater appreciation of the Catholic education process.

Any parishioner of Ss. James & Patrick and/or legal guardian of a student enrolled at St. Patrick School interested in the development of Catholic youth in St. Patrick School is eligible for membership in this Association.

Meetings are held regularly throughout the year. Interesting programs with speakers may be planned as well as open house, book fairs, children’s displays, etc. It’s a great way to meet people, learn more about school and other ways to become involved during the year.

The Home and School Association provides a number of committee and volunteer services which support school activities including:

  • Hospitality: Extends a personal welcome to new members of the school and Association.
  • General Room Chair: Recruits room volunteers for each grade and arranges room parties.
  • Publicity: Coordinates information to be published in the Church bulletin and sent home in the Monday family folders and advertises events with relevant sources.
  • Social Volunteer: Recruits volunteers to help with programs that are not necessarily academic, but are viable programs.
