Parent Organizations

Our Lady of Mount Carmel School has established both a Parent Guild and a Consultative School Board.  Both groups exist to support the school and are critical to the school’s viability, but they have very different functions.

Parent Guild

The main functions of the Parent Guild are to raise funds for the school’s current operational expenses, to promote parental support for the school program, and to increase mutual understanding between school and parents. The membership of the Parent Guild includes the pastor, the principal, the parents or legal guardians, and the faculty of the school. Parent Guild nominations are accepted during April and elections are held each May at the General Parent Meeting.  The Parent Guild meets the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM.  All parents are welcome to attend Parent Guild meetings; to place something on the agenda, please email the school principal one week prior to meeting.
