Parent Organization

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Parent Organization of Saint Ignatius welcomes you to the 2019-20 school year!  It is an exciting time for the students who are reconnecting with old friends, making new friends, and preparing for new academic classes and high school activities! As parents, we welcome you to the new year filled with social events, class-wide masses, and informative gatherings on current topics of interest.
As Ignatius parents, you are automatically members of The Saint Ignatius Parent Organization. The Parent Organization offers the opportunity for you to meet other parents at one of the many school events we host throughout the year.  There are several ways to become involved in the Organization. Some of our activities include:
  • Planning and assisting with events such as the annual Mini-Class Night, the Open House, Class Masses, and Post Prom
  • Helping with and attending two fun-filled social events: Backyard BBQ and Trivia
  • Attending Parent Organization meetings in the fall and spring on current parent/student topics
We encourage you to get involved and enjoy fellowship with other school parents. Our children are here for such a short period of time, we would love to see you make the most of it!
