Parent Council

Saint Philomena School Parent Council

Hello St. Philomena School families,

The St. Philomena School Parent Council is excited to welcome back all returning parents and students and we are happy to extend a big welcome to new families entering our great school.

I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Jeanine Barry, mother of Aydan Barry, Grade 5. I am the Parent Council Chair for the school year 2017-2018. The Parent Council is a newly formed group of parent volunteers dedicated to overseeing and promoting family events that happen throughout the year.

The Parent Council is utilizing this upcoming year to transition into a new Council format, gather parent feedback, promote family involvement and develop a concise Parent Council Model. We will be working towards connecting Room Parents and the Parent Council. The Parent Council will maintain communication and support with Room Parents and develop a Room Parents information booklet for future Room Parent Volunteers.

Additional goals will be to establish a connection between any Event Coordinators (i.e. Fall Fair, Father/Daughter Dance) and the Parent Council and to develop a written organizational model to be used as reference for Event Coordinators in the future. We strive to have completed information packets on each annual event before September 2018.

Some of the annual events that the council will help coordinate and oversee include the Welcome Back Mass/Picnic, Fall Fair, Christmas Pageant, Catholic Schools Week celebrations, Father/Daughter Dance, Mother/Son Event, Spring Family Mass and the Last Day Family Picnic.

Please look for our Parent Council Announcements, surveys, sign-ups and all the ways you can join in on the fun!

I am very excited to get started as the Parent Council Chair. Please so not hesitate to email me with any questions.
