Parent Organization

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Parent Organization of Saint Ignatius welcomes you to the 2022-23 school year! We look forward to seeing all safely back on campus this fall! We know that parents and students are eager to return to school life and begin reconnecting with new & old friends. Rest assured that our School Administration and Staff have been working behind the scenes to plan a safe and smooth transition back to school. 

Though what was once familiar may not be the same, we hope that through shared information and open communication, our parent & school partnership will be collaborative, working toward the common goal of strengthening our students academically and social-emotionally during these challenging times.  As we head into the fall, the Parent Organization remains hopeful, but committed to adapting the school social events, masses and gatherings. We appreciate your patience during this time as the trajectory of the pandemic ebbs and flows. Along with the Ignatius Administration, we will adjust thoughtfully as the year goes on and as more up-to-date information is obtained.  Please feel free to touch base with any of the Parent Organization Board Members anytime and please remain invested in our bi-weekly communication in the Wolfpack Post, as it will serve as a lifeline for staying abreast of school and social developments. 

Membership & Participation
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 past 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 Night
  • Attending Parent Organization meetings in the fall and spring on current parent/student topics

To the extent that you are able during this unique school year, we encourage you to get involved and enjoy fellowship with other school parents. Please VOLUNTEER!  Our children are here for such a short period of time, we would love to see you make the most of it!  Here is our adapted Calendar of events for the 2022-23 school year!  We look forward to connecting and meeting new faces!

Virtual Trivia Night
On Saturday, January 30th, the Saint Ignatius Parent Organization held their 6th Annual Virtual Trivia Night. There were over 275 participants, including our resident Jesuits! There was a welcome message from the Parent Organization President, Kris Kause, Saint Ignatius President, John Chandler and an opening prayer from Rev. Patrick Fairbanks, S.J.  Each team did very well and had fun connecting and laughing, and of course playing trivia. Congratulations to Team Chris Murphy on answering the most questions correctly!
