Parents at OMGC School
At Our Mother of Good Counsel School, parents are considered the first teachers of their children. As such, they are an integral part of the school community. Parents are represented through the Parent-Teacher Organization. They serve on various PTO committees and School Boards. A representative from each family is expected to attend at least the first and last PTO meetings of the year.
OMGC parents are required to complete 40 hours of service.
15 service hours are to be completed for parish/school fundraising efforts.
12 fundraising hours toward the annual Festival/Auction and 3 fundraising hours toward the annual Grandma's Attic rummage sale.
This year the Festival and Grandma's Attic will be a combined event - October 13, 14, 15, 2017.
The Black and White Auction is Saturday, May 5, 2018.
The remaining 25 hours may be completed in a variety of ways during the school year. Parents are invited to contribute their talents, ideas and creativity to enhance the school experience of our students. They have served as music leaders, field trip chaperones and site-maintenance workers. Parents are often asked to help with social events and celebrations. Parents may choose to contribute to the school by working in the office as clerical assistants or in the classroom as aides, providing a service for the school, providing items for school events or room parents. OMGC strives to provide ample opportunities and flexibility for parents to complete their service hours.
Parents are invited and encouraged to attend all school events, such as prayer services, school-wide Masses, assemblies, and any special events.
A bi-weekly newsletter is published on Wednesdays, by administration, to inform parents of school news and upcoming events. The newsletter is posted on the website, but can also be emailed directly to an email address registered to your family. Simply click on "Register for E-News" at the bottom of this page and enter your information.
All families MUST read and submit a signed statement accepting the policies and procedures outlined in the handbook. It is imperative that we operate as a team with the same expectations for behavior and participation.
