Parents In Education


What is Parents In Education (PIE)? It’s a group of parents, staff, and community members that make up Holy Family, comparable to PTO/PTA programs at other schools. We take a lead role in organizing school projects and events, including fund-raising and finding volunteers. In past years, we have given money to teachers, put on events like dances and a social after the Christmas program, plus coordinate annual fund-raisers like the fall magazine sale and school supply pre-order program. If you’re a parent, employee, community member, or all three, you’re already considered a member and we invite you to become involved! We meet bi-monthly, and we’re always looking for enthusiastic people and fresh ideas.
