Parents Club – Mission Statement
Parents Club exists to support the overall mission of the school. The objectives used to accomplish our mission are:
- Raising money for St. Thomas More Parish School.
- Providing social activities that bring staff, students and parents together.
- Providing educational programs of interest to parents.
- Supporting the school administration and teachers in their ministry as Catholic educators.
Recognizing the need to raise additional money for the benefit of our school, without disrupting the educational school day, the St. Thomas More Parish School Commission has adopted a “cafeteria style” program to meet our fundraising needs.
School Commission adopted the new program in January 2002 and the changes are derived from the directives of the 2001 Case Statement.
This program allows school families to choose between the various fundraisers operated by Parents Club, and a direct contribution choice to meet a minimum fundraising obligation. This minimum fundraising amount is determined annually and based upon the necessary and appropriate expenses associated with the Parents Club budget which includes an amount given directly to the school. Approximately 90% of funds raised go directly to the school operating budget, with the remaining 10% used for indirect and other needs of the School.
