Holy Child encourages parent participation in the life of the school and offers parents of all students the opportunity to become involved at many levels. We invite you to enjoy your daughter’s years at Holy Child by volunteering in various capacities.  What a great way to join in your daughter’s experience while meeting new people!

 The Parents’ Association sponsors a number of activities and encourages parents to become involved in the planning, execution, and enjoyment of each one. Some parents choose to take on leadership roles, and others support their daughters in activities by working behind the scenes. The enthusiastic support of our current families helps enrich their connection to Holy Child and many stay involved long after their daughters graduate.

Welcome to the Holy Child Parents’ Association! Working in concert with the school, the HCPA seeks to foster a warm, welcoming and inclusive community for all Holy Child families. The HCPA is also a parent resource for families throughout the year and we hope you will attend one of our parent coffees or evening events. The HCPA encourages your participation in the life of the school and offers parents of all students the opportunity to get involved at various levels.

The HCPA is only as strong as the volunteers who help to support it, so WE NEED YOU! There are many ways to get involved, from being a Grade Level Representative to volunteering for one of our annual Fundraisers such as the Tiger Trot, Mayfield Market or the Spring Gala. We also have opportunities for parents to volunteer in the Tiger Shop, our school store that is open every day before school and at lunch, and to help with Hot Lunch. You will be receiving additional information from us during the school year about all these ways to volunteer and how to sign up.

Throughout the school year I encourage all of you to reach out to me with any questions you may have or to contact your Grade level Reps. I am looking forward to serving as the president of the Parents' Association and hope to meet you soon! If there is anything I can do to help you, please do not hesitate to reach out at any time. Go Tigers!!!

Sincerely,

Claire Slabaugh

President, Holy Child Parents Association

(Anne – Class of 2021)
