Parent Club | Catholic School Advisory Commission (CSAC)

Parent Club

The St. Rose Parent Club is organized to assist the pastor and the principal in every way possible to provide for the needs of the students and the classrooms. All parents are members of the Parent Club and required to give yearly service points, a Parent Club fee tax-deductible fee, and scrip purchases:

  • to promote active involvement in their children's education
  • to build community
  • to raise funds

Funds raised by the Parent Club are used to sponsor spiritual, educational and cultural activities for students, parents, and faculty; for equipment, materials, books, and other supplies which are in the school budget and which will aid the educational work of the school.

Parents build community as they work together on fundraising, cleaning on Saturday Workdays, and earning their service points. While working for the general good, friendships and school pride result.

The officers meet monthly. All members of the club (parents) are welcome to attend these meetings.

We are very proud of the parents' participation. This support helps our school to be affordable and enjoyable for all and truly creates community.

Parent Commitment / Obligation

The Parent Club Commitment & Agreement outlines the two areas (yearly service point commitment and Scrip program) of parent participation and commitment to the St. Rose School Parent Club. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to complete all the service activities they have agreed to perform during the current school year. Parent commitment/obligations must be completed no later than May 15.
