Parent Teacher Group (P.T.G)

The Saint Michael’s Parent Teacher Group coordinates activities, performs services, builds school spirit, supports staff and involves parents by encouraging them to be active members of the school community and to raise school-related funds. The PTG also allows for appropriate lines of communication between parents, teachers and the administration.

Mission Statement

The primary responsibility for the St Michael’s School Parent Teacher Group (PTG) is to foster the relationship between family and school so that parents and educators may cooperate in the development of faith, knowledge, and character of each child. This is achieved by:

  • Promoting a broad appreciation of the need for and ideals of a sound Catholic education.
  • Providing parents with a structure through which parents may become active in the life of the school community.
  • Maximizing financial resources available to the school through well-planned fundraising activities, volunteer services and contributions from the business community.
  • Providing Christ-like encouragement and support by fostering communication and relationships between parents, teachers, administration, and students in our school family.

Advisory Council

The School Advisory Council is comprised of nine current school parents, as well as the president of the Parent-Teacher Group (PTG). Experts in their respective fields, the Advisory Council members chair sub-committees, which include: Finance,Grounds and Maintenance, Development (fundraising), Public Relations and Marketing, and Technology. Advisory Council meetings are held each month, at which time the pastor presents a parish report, the principal and vice principal provide policy and curricular udates, and council members present sub-committee information. While the role of the council is advisory, their input is highly valued and respected.

Parent Ambassadors

2019-2020 School Year

The Parent Ambassador group at St. Michael’s School was founded in 2019.  We are a group of parent volunteers whose purpose is to welcome new families and help them integrate into the school community.  This group was founded to directly address a key initiative within the school’s strategic plan.  Parent Ambassadors are ultimately accountable to the principal.
