The Parent Association at St. Martin's Episcopal School adds strength to our programs, our community, and, most importantly, our children. Our school is privileged to have an active, creative group of parents who chair important fundraising campaigns, create spirit-building events and volunteer on our campus and in our classrooms - all to benefit the school.
Who are we?
Our mission is to welcome all families into the school community and develop this connection through volunteerism and fellowship. We support the mission of St. Martin’s Episcopal School and are a resource for parent engagement throughout their students’ educational experience.
What do we do?
Almost every extracurricular and in-school social event at St. Martin’s is sponsored and produced by the Parent Association. These include our Hot Lunch Program, Preschool Movie Night and Ice Cream Socials, the Book Fair, School dances, Fall for St. Martin’s Spirit Week, the Thanksgiving Feast, Adult Get-togethers, annual Spaghetti Dinner, end-of-school Field Day & School Cookout, and Preschool Picnics. In addition to our programming geared towards students and their families, we also plan and fund a faculty & staff Christmas breakfast, Teacher Appreciation Week, and other gratitude initiatives to thank our awesome teachers.
How do we do it?
After undertaking a significant strategic planning process two years ago, our PA decided to follow the lead of many other successful parent associations, including local public and private elementary schools, using a universal dues structure in which each family contributes. It allows the Parent Association to run a fiscally responsible operating budget, hold consistent events, and cut down on the much-bemoaned small fundraisers throughout the year. The dues this year are $75 per family and are collected through FACTS for convenience. If you would prefer to pay via check or PayPal, please contact Christine Hickey.
Come to our monthly PA meetings at 9am on the second Thursday of each month. It’s a great way to stay updated with all the happenings at St. Martin’s!
