Home & School Association

“The Home and School Association exists to:

  • enhance communication between and bring into closer relationship parents/guardians, faculty and administrators
  • promote an interest in educational matters and an understanding of the mutual responsibilities of parents and teachers in education
  • encourage quality family life
  • benefit the school through fund raising for special projects
  • sponsor special events and activities for the school community.”  

 - Father Jim Chelich, “Elements of a Successful Catholic School”


All families of Saint Thomas the Apostle School are members of the Home and School Association. Our mission is to foster “Dynamic Education Centered in Christ.” To support our mission, consider volunteering for one of many Home and School Association committees or events. Our Volunteer in Partnership program gives our parents an opportunity to share their gifts and talents. The Home and School Association contributes to the Saint Thomas spirit through the financial support of a bi-annual Auction.

2020Logo FINAL circleThis year because of COVID-19, our Auction is going virtual! We invite all Saint Thomas parishioners and friends to join us the week of Monday, September 28 through Saturday, October 3 for our bi-annual You Belong Here – Vision 2020 virtual fund raiser. Register for this FREE community event and receive your official You Belong Here bid number.
