ST. AGNES SCHOOL’S

PARENT TEACHER GUILD (PTG)

 

All parents are members of St. Agnes PTG.  We do have a $5.00 membership fee.  This money is used throughout the year to provide luncheons for the staff, surprise refreshments for the students, gifts for the graduates, and other items as the need arises.   We hold three meetings a year.  We try to provide educational parental help through speakers for our second meeting.  The 1st meeting is followed by an Open House and at the third meeting our principal gives a wrap up of the school year and plans for the future.

 

Why should you be involved?

Participation through volunteering allows you to be “hands on” with your child’s education.  All research indicates that when families are involved, a child is more apt to get higher grades, be more likely to graduate, and go on to college.  Our children love to see their parents in the environment where they spend seven hours a day.  You get to learn more about your child’s teachers and your children’s friends.

 

Participation through attendance at the three meetings gives you a voice.  You help decide what we do as a group.  If you are new to St. Agnes School the established families help you to feel comfortable, are available to answer your questions, and ease your transition into becoming a school family.  If you are new to our community, we’re always happy to help wherever possible.  An added bonus is that you have the opportunity to meet wonderful people who can become great friends.

 

What are the benefits of membership?

The benefits of membership are very rewarding.  You have the knowledge that, with your participation and involvement, the educational and social experiences of all students at St. Agnes School have been greatly enhanced.  That is in addition to the benefits listed above.

 

What do members do?

We are about men and women working together toward a common goal.  That goal, simply stated is creating a better school and a better educational experience for our children.  We strive to create an atmosphere where teachers, administrators, and support staff can do their best work – and so can our children.  There’s so much more that can be done and we need your help.  “Together we can accomplish more.”  We look forward to seeing all that can be and will be accomplished this school year when we come together, as a group and as a community to enhance and maximize the education of every child.

 

Throughout the year we hold family activities such as Lunch with Santa, dinners, pancake breakfast, movie night, ice skating, etc.
