Recognizing that a student's academic and personal achievement can be significantly affected by the involvement of parents in the school, the St. Vincent Pallotti Parent Guild has been established to:
1) Promote communication between parents and the school
2) Provide social and spiritual opportunities for parents
3) Support the Post Prom safe celebration held for students
4) Coordinate parent volunteer efforts within the school
5) Host Information Nights on topics of interest to Pallotti Parents
The Parent Guild supports the school through a broad range of committees, such as:
Post Prom Committee: In order to help keep our students safe on prom night, this committee organizes and plans the Post Prom Party, an all-night safe event that include games, food, all sorts of entertainment and special gifts for the students. Past parties have been held at ESPN Zone, on an all-night cruise and at Dave and Buster's. The committee sponsors several fund-raisers throughout the year, including a student/faculty basketball game; flower sales, bake sales and doughnut sales; raffle for a Prom Basket of useful items and gift certificates; and Tag Days.
Parent Mentoring Committee: Volunteers reach out to parents of incoming students by providing a parent-to-parent link between new families and our school. Through phone calls, email and other links, mentors work one-on-one, answering questions, providing useful information and following up as newcomers enjoy recognizing that they are also part of the “Pallotti Family.”
Hospitality Committee: This committee organizes teacher breakfasts and lunches and helps with refreshments at Parent Guild meetings and special programs.
Uniform Exchange Committee: Donations of gently used school uniforms can be dropped off at the Sister Lucy Lobby (the old entry foyer). This committee organizes the Uniform Swaps, which are held throughout the year to help parents save money.
Textbook Exchange Committee: Parents can earn money, and save money, by selling their students’ used textbooks to other Pallotti families, and buying used textbooks directly from other Pallotti families. This committee organizes the exchange and administrates the Yahoo group.
Public Relations Committee: Maintain the Parent Guild Webpage on the Pallotti High School Website, be the Edline PPG coordinator, and implement ways to keep the Pallotti Parent Guild parent members informed about upcoming events and quickly disseminate parent news.
Membership/Outreach Committee: Support membership participation, volunteers and nominations. Occasionally members are asked to help support other school activities or help Pallotti Families in need of assistance.
