Parents' Association

This is the place to get more involved, get to know more parents and make an impact for your child’s school! Our membership consists of parents or guardians of students at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School. We have had record participation in our community events and fundraising efforts. Together, we have worked diligently to accomplish our charter’s objective of bringing the home, school, and church into closer relationship. We have more volunteers than ever, all working toward the goal of supporting the STA community.

Major fundraising events or programs are as follows:

  • Bingo/Carnival  (September)
  • Auction  (February)
  • Miscellaneous (Target, Albertson's): Year Round
The Parents' Association Board serves to plan, organize, and coordinate events and programs which directly support and benefit our school. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month. If you would like to know more or how to volunteer, contact a member of our board.
