The St. Henry Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a volunteer based organization whose purpose is to strengthen, enhance and encourage the educational and social environment at St. Henry Catholic School. Its goals are to complement the school curriculum with additional opportunities for parents, teachers and students to learn, socialize, communicate and grow.

All parents/guardians of children currently enrolled at SHCS and all SHCS faculty are automatically members of the SHCS PTO. The PTO Board is composed of members who are either elected or appointed to Board positions.  There are currently 30 members on the PTO Board. The Board typically meets monthly throughout the school year on the third Tuesday of each month in the school library from 6-7pm.  All are welcome to attend these planning meetings.  Minutes from each meeting will be posted on the school website once they are approved.  The dates for the Board Meetings are as follows

October 17
November 21
December 19
January 16
February 20
March 20
April 17
May 15

The PTO operates on an annual budget, which is approved by a PTO membership vote. All members of the St. Henry PTO, attending the monthly PTO meetings, have voting privileges. The money used to sponsor PTO activities is raised through PTO annual fundraising events. Our main school fundraiser is the CRUSADER ROYALE, an adult casino-style event held in the school gym on March 3, 2018 – Save the date!  The PTO also receives income through the following programs (please see school website for other opportunities):

o   Kroger Community Rewards                                     

o   Remke Caring Neighbors

o   Skyline Chili Nights/Restaurant Nights             

o   Box Tops for Education

The PTO communicates with parents primarily through the Principal’s weekly newsletter as well as through the St. Henry Grade School Parent Facebook Page, St. Henry’s and St. Barb’s church bulletins, and flyers sent home.  The PTO primarily utilizes Sign-Up Genius as a way to recruit/communicate with volunteers for events and donations needed.         

The success of the St. Henry PTO can be measured in the cooperative spirit with which parents and staff work together to share their care and concern for St. Henry School students. The PTO’s success can be seen in the student’s appreciation for their school, their teachers and the opportunities presented. We are always looking for new ideas, new faces, and feedback. Contact us at any time, or better yet, come to a Board Meeting!  We look forward to a positive, productive, and fun year!
