PARENTS CLUB 2023-24
Parents Club is the voice for parents and guardians of students at St. Luke School. Everyone with a child at the school is a member! Our organization is lead by an Executive Board who represent the General Membership and function as a governing body in matters of Club business. They are directly responsible to the Principal and Pastor.
The purpose of Parents Club is captured in the bylaws this way:
facilitate communication between home and school
provide service and financial support to the school
promote a sense of community
provide support and appreciation for teachers, school staff, families and students
WHAT KINDS OF THINGS DOES PARENTS
CLUB DO TO FULFILL ITS PURPOSE?
Primarily, we are a bridge between parents and the school. We convey parents’ questions and perspective about what is happening at school to the administration and provide information that helps parents support their children’s comprehensive growth towards Catholic Christian leadership.
In the past, we have sponsored a wide range of activities in the school. We are a dynamic organization, and these activities change from time to time and over the years. Likewise, our contributions to tangible items also change. In recent years we have been able to support the installation of new playground equipment, the purchase of dozens of math games, a giant playground chess set.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
First, we have one of the best groups of parents a school could ask for: parents who are thoughtfully engaged, unbelievably generous, and eager to share their time and talents through a wide range of volunteer opportunities. Second, we historically collect membership dues and fundraise. Our main fundraiser is the St.
Luke-a-Thon in the fall.
Families are responsible for 30 volunteer hours at the school or parish and $200 in Parents Club fundraising. Sometimes families decide to buy out the fundraising or volunteer hour commitment. Go to the Volunteers tab on the website to sign up and get involved today! If that happens to be your family this year, you can make your check payable to St. Luke Parents Club. Though Parents Club funds are separate from money raised for the Annual Fund, the St. Luke Auction and the SCRIP program, Parents Club endorses parents to actively participate in these opportunities to support the school, too. We like to hear from you, and we need to hear from you! If you have any questions or comments, please contact St. Luke Parents Club at firstname.lastname@example.org.
