St. Columbkille Parent Association

The St. Columbkille Parent Association is a parent-run organization that supports our teachers and supplements and enhances the students’ education.

All parents are automatically members of the parent association and can attend meetings, which are held bi-monthly on the second or third Monday of each month from 2 p.m.–3:15 p.m. at the school.

The parent association coordinates numerous activities, such as:

  • Teacher luncheons
  • Granderson's Day treats
  • The fall walk-a-thon (the only fundraiser for the parent association)
  • The annual sock hop
  • Skate parties
  • Splash Bash
  • Field Day
  • Staff Appreciation Week activities

The parent association also coordinates the school memory book each year as well as staff birthday gifts.

To get involved, simply attend a parent association meeting. Check the school calendar for dates and times, or contact the St. Columbkille school office.
