Guardian Angels

Dear Parents of All Saints Catholic School,

Welcome back! Well, soon enough, right?

I’m Nancy Johnston, a parent and parishioner at All Saints. I have the honor of being your Guardian Angel President this coming academic year. I have 2 children at the school (Claire -7th, Ben – 5th), and 2 children that have graduated. I’d like to tell you of some upcoming events and a little about Guardian Angels.

What is Guardian Angels (GA)??? GA is the parent/teacher organization at All Saints. We strive to help the school be a fun and welcoming place for students and parents alike. We host many events, including family fun festival, children’s theater, parents’ night out, and more. We fundraise and also sponsor a scholarship for alumni as they graduate from high school. And much more.

But, why should you be involved?
● Do you want to know more about what goes on at the school? Being a member or attending meetings is a great way to get involved!
● Did you know that attending meetings and participating in events counts as volunteer hours that are necessary for parents? ● And guess what? We need you! It’s a win-win situation.

Here’s a couple of upcoming events and our next meetings.

FRI AUG 9th: Matt Maher concert – renowned Catholic/Christian recording artist
● 6:30-8pm at All Saints Church, $20 advance; $25 at door
● We still need 2 or 3 more families to volunteer to help greet, usher, or sell merchandise at the event.
● This is a BIG fundraiser for the school, equivalent to Strive to Drive!!!

WED AUG 14th:
● 5-6pm: Uniform Exchange in the cafeteria – drop off clothes at the mass previous weekend or on Tuesday Aug 13th at the school during business hours.
● 6pm-7:30pm: First GA Meeting

TUES AUG 20th: 5-7pm

Mission Statement
The Guardian Angels is the school’s Parent/Teacher organization.  Meetings are held the second Wednesday of the month at 6:00pm in the school library.  All parents are encouraged to attend.  The group’s primary objective is to work with the teachers and to provide things for the students that aren’t otherwise included in the general budget.  The Guardian Angels also designate one parent from each class to serve as “Class Parent.”  Guardian Angels are also responsible for events such as the Back to School BBQ, Family Fun Festival, Book Fair Dinners and other events.
