Parent’s Guild

Parents’ Guild Mission Statement

The purpose of the Parents’ Guild is to strengthen and enhance the educational and social environment of Our Lady of Lourdes School. We encourage communication between our parents, teachers, the Principal, and the Development Committee. We work to provide our School community with the opportunities to socialize, learn,
communicate, and grow.

Every parent or guardian of an Our Lady of Lourdes Student is a member of the Guild. The officers are elected to their position (for a two-year term) and represent the membership. Our meetings are generally held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month during the school year. We meet at 6:30 P.M. at the school and we encourage everyone to attend.

Our meetings provide a forum to communicate with other parents as well as the Principal and the Development Committee. The Guild is place to go to know what’s happening! It gives an opportunity to educate parents on the “behind the scene” items that are dealt with when trying to plan events for our students and their families as well as reviewing any updates from our Principal and/or Development Committee.

The Guild sponsors after school events as well as in-school Enrichment projects.

Your attendance at our events and your donations allow us to purchase supplies which enhance our children’s learning experience. We have been able to purchase recess equipment, a digital camera for teachers’ in-school use, and gift cards for teachers to purchase classroom supplies, recognizing the teachers & staff for Teacher’s Day with a luncheon and air-conditioners for each classroom.

Plans are in the works for some exciting activities. We appreciate the opportunity to work together with you to achieve our goal of making Our Lady of Lourdes a special place for our children and their families.
