About the Holy Family Parent Teacher Group
The Parent Teacher Group (PTG) was established at Holy Family School to promote greater communication and understanding between administration, faculty, and parents. All school families are members of the PTG and pay a membership fee of $40 at the beginning of the school year. Monthly meetings are communicated via Fast Direct. School parents are encouraged to attend monthly meetings. The committee is formed through volunteers who have made a year-long commitment to be actively engaged in the PTG. Reach out to any committee member or the co-chairs to join the committee!
Co-Presidents: Michelle Peitz and Laura Mahon
Committee: Akie Ferguson, Allison Matusin, Angela Malone, Anne Johnson, Buffi Kaufman, Danielle Cooling, Jamila Wicks, Kari Quintenz, Kristin Schrock, Laura Boaz Feriozzi, McKenzie Sloan, Megan Bennett
Family Volunteering Expectations
Active engagement by student families contributes to our school’s success. In addition to supporting the school and our teaching staff, PTG strives to develop community in the school and parish through activities for families and students. Some of these activities are intended to raise money that allows us to fund technology improvements, educational development tools, and other resources that help advance our students and school.
To be successful we need your help! We expect each Holy Family Catholic School family to contribute 25 volunteer hours to support school activities. There is a host of ways to do this through PTG planned events, opportunities in the classroom, sporting events, contributions of requested supplies, and more!
Student safety is of utmost importance. To volunteer at Holy Family Catholic School, it is required to take the Protecting God’s Children safety course and complete a standard background check. This course is offered online and should be taken early in the school year. The course only needs to be completed once. It must be taken by each person who contributes towards your family’s hours by volunteering at the school. This includes grandparents, aunts and uncles, and close family friends, etc.
For families who are unable to fulfill the 25 volunteer hours, you are asked to provide a $500 check in place of the 25 hours.
