Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at St. Celestine School! St. Parents Club would like to extend a warm welcome to all the new and returning families. We are happy to be back and look forward to making this school year one for the books!

At St. Celestine School, Parents Club is responsible for planning and implementing many events and fundraisers throughout the school year. There are so many ways to participate in Parents Club – attend our monthly meetings, become a Room Parent/Helper, dine out for restaurant nights or volunteer your time to assist with events such as Scholastic Book Fair, Trunk or Treat, Santa’s Secret Shop and Fun Fair. We are currently looking for a Scholastic Rep to assist us for our two annual Scholastic Book Fairs, if you are interested in leading a team, email us at parentsclub@stcelestineschool.org.

Last school year was incredibly successful in both fundraising and celebrating our amazing teachers & staff. We are only successful because of the fantastic parents and family members who help carry out our events. More than ever- we need YOU and want to hear from you. Share your ideas, start a group to lead a new fundraiser or event, help us make any adjustments to increase participation- so many great changes can happen when we come together.
