Parent Association

The St. Benedict's Parent Association Welcomes You

We believe education is a collaborative effort. Our teachers support students’ development outside of school as well, and they often attend performances and athletic events. Equally important is the contribution of our many dedicated parents. Our very active and involved Parent Association hosts events such as Trunk-or-Treat, the Sweetheart Dance, book fairs, and parent socials. They volunteer throughout the school and serve as mystery readers, helping the teachers with classroom supplies and displays, and coordinating special events for the students. 

Every parent and guardian of a student attending St. Benedict's is automatically a member of the Parent Association (PA).  The PA is only as successful as the parents who donate their time, talents, and treasure.  We hope you will join us in one of the many amazing opportunities we have to support our school and our children.  
The purpose of the PA is to:

  • Raise Money: The PA shall raise money to augment the resources available to the school.

  • Show Appreciation. The PA shall express the appreciation of the parents for the staff of the school.

  • Foster Community.  The PA shall organize opportunities for members to gather and enhance their sense of community.

  • Communications.  The PA shall serve as a conduit for information between parents and the school.  

2019-2020 Parent Association Dues $75.00 Per Family
