OLOL Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
Our Lady of Lourdes Parent Teacher Association is made up of volunteer parents acting as liaisons to school administration, faculty and parents. Meetings are held twice per year in the Fall and Spring. The entire school committee is invited to attend.
PTA dues are $25 per family and paid through the consolidated invoice at the beginning of the school year or a separate check payable to OLOL PTA on Sneak a Peek Sunday. Dues help pay for PTA initiatives that benefit OLOL students, teachers, and families. Other suggested contributions include $15 per student for classroom parties (note: individual classrooms may coordinate a collection for homeroom teachers’ gifts at Christmas and year end). Dues and suggested contributions are completely voluntary.
PTA initiatives include the following:
New Parent Orientation – August
An informative welcome event for new OLOL School families; introduction to school, K-teachers, School Board, Finance Committee, Athletic Association, and PTA.
Middle School Co-Coordinator
Liaison between school and families to ensure coordination of initiatives for Middle School students.
Room parents help plan and host three classroom parties each year and help with Donut Sunday for the class above (i.e. 1st grade room parents host the Donut Sunday after the 2nd grade mass).
