the student and their family are welcomed into more than a school. STARS is a community and one extension of our community is the Family Association. Parents, Grandparents, and Guardians of students by virtue of enrollment are members of the Family Association.
is to work for the good of the school by families sharing their time and talents to benefit the school, our regional communities, regional Parishes, and alumni. STARS Family Association is similar in concept to a public school’s PTA.
The Family Association is organized into three (3) Teams: Outreach Team, Social Team, and Fundraising Team. Each Team carries out activities in their respective area to bridge the gap between the school’s resources and the needs of the school. Each Team is led by multiple parents/guardians, who coordinate the Team’s activities, invite families to participate and ensure a collaborative effort. Each Team’s coordinators are also invited to attend the Board of Trustees meetings.
are held on the second Thursday of each month (except during holidays or vacations), 6:30 pm in the school cafeteria. See the school calendar for the specific meeting dates. For those that can’t make it in person, a conference call line is available. The purpose of the meetings is for the Teams to report their monthly activity and needs and for everyone to share ideas.
Each Team holds separate meetings to decide on the events and activities it will host. Separate smaller committees are formed with families who have an interest in that event/activity and planning takes place. All families are invited and strongly encouraged to participate in the activities/events that interest them. All contributions help STARS be an warm, welcoming, enjoyable place for all families and the STARS community is grateful for everyone’s contributions great and small.
The STARS Family Association supports a superior education for all students and provides the resources and network to achieve the school’s mission. The Family Association will accomplish this through volunteer efforts, uplifting teachers and the principal, fundraising, effective communication to stakeholders, promoting Christian values, and supporting families. All school families are ambassadors of STARS.
