The PTA (Parent / Teacher Association) is YOU! All of our SHS parents are members of the PTA, and we'd love to have your active participation.
What does the PTA do?
The PTA organizes fundraisers for the benefit of our students at Sacred Heart School. Some of the fundraisers include the Quarter Auction and the Annual PTA Breakfast.
The funds we raise help to cover the cost of the art program provided at SHS, and are also used to purchase items like additional books and supplies for our classrooms, TeacherEase and Accelerated Reading software, wish list items for our teachers, Catholic Schools Week activities (taking students bowling or to a movie), Santa visits and Christmas gifts for students, Teacher Appreciation Week festivities, End of School Picnic / Assembly, and upkeep of the school / parish kitchen. The students have also enjoyed many educational assemblies - including musical performances, reptile shows, author book signings, and more - all as a result of the PTA funds raised.
We ask for your support of these events not only in your attendance, but also in volunteering to work a shift. This is a great opportunity to work alongside other parents and get to know the families of Sacred Heart School. Signup sheets will be available in the weeks leading up to each planned event.
Being an Active PTA Member
Every Sacred Heart School parent is automatically a member of PTA; however, being an active member of the PTA offers many benefits. It keeps parents involved in the day-to-day happenings, and it enables you to meet other parents and to be a vital part of your child's educational success. It simply requires a strong desire and commitment to become involved in helping our school, students, teachers, and staff. Our meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month (during school months only). It is not required that you attend every meeting, but your attendance allows you to give your input to new ideas and/or tweaking past ideas and events.
