The School of St. Mary Parents Association (“PA”) supports the School of St. Mary’s (“SOSM”) vision and mission and serves to enhance the educational and social environment of the school through effective activities and communications designed to support academic and financial goals. Every parent/guardian of a child at SOSM is a member of the PA. The SOSM PA shares the core value and beliefs of the School of St. Mary. The SOSM PA does not actively participate in curriculum or school administration, as that is a function of the School Advisory Council (SAC). The organization receives direction from and is ultimately accountable to the Pastor of the Church of St. Mary, the school principal, and in his/her absence, the school assistant principal.
The purpose of the PA is to:
Provide community-building opportunities through all activities
Organize, oversee, and perform all volunteer needs
Plan and carry out fundraisers with proceeds supporting the school and programs for continual improvement and enrichment
Lend to the school’s continual advancement through active family support of time, talents, and treasure.
