Parent Involvement At Holy Rosary

Faith Formation and Education Commission

The Holy Rosary Parish Faith Formation and Education Commission is committed to helping all members of our faith community to live the faith. Holy Rosary Catholic School and the Religious Education program receive special attention by this commission. Areas of responsibility include school, religious education, Vacation Bible School, youth ministry and adult education.

School Council

The Holy Rosary School Council is developed to specifically concentrate on school issues. The Council consists of nine members who must be registered Catholic members of Holy Rosary Parish and who serve three-year terms. The pastor, school principal, the director of religious education, preschool director, teacher representative, PTO representative and Booster Club representative may serve as ex-officio members of this Council.

Booster Club

The Booster Club provides the leadership and financial support for sports programs through Holy Rosary Catholic School. Membership is open to all Holy Rosary families. Parents are strongly encouraged to show their support of our athletic programs by joining the Booster Club.

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

The PTO holds as its purpose:

  • To promote communication and participation between the school and the parents through activities such as: PTO meetings, projects and proposals, classroom helpers and parent volunteers, membership, publicity, hospitality, school directory, and parent packs.
  • To assist the school in educational activities that might not otherwise be available. Committees include: Health, Drug Education and Awareness, Art Fair, Aluminum Can Recycling Project and more.
  • To support student events, rewards and parties. Committees include: Field Day, 8th grade Graduation Reception and Luncheon, and Student and Staff Appreciation to name a few.
  • To form special Committees as needed and as issues arise.

The budget of the PTO includes planning for (but is not limited to) the following: Library support, Tuition Assistance, Technology Support, Speech Program, Art Fair, Science Lab, Music Program, Student Appreciation, Safety Patrol, Teachers’ Appreciation, Catholic Schools Week, and Physical Education Equipment.

Membership in the PTO is open to anyone with children enrolled at Holy Rosary Catholic School and to all members of the faculty. All school parents and teachers are considered members of the HR PTO and are not assessed dues. Meetings dates and times will be communicated through the school newsletter and are open to all parents and teachers.
