Parents Group

St. George's Parents Group is a volunteer organization that holds several social and fundraising events each year. In recent years, fundraisers have included a gift wrap sale, a family "Knight at City Park", a fall and spring book fair, and the Soirée, a party and auction held in the spring. While all are important as fundraisers, they are also valued as opportunities to enjoy each other in a social setting.

The Parents Group also functions as a school service organization by conducting hearing and vision screenings, hosting two faculty luncheons each year, providing faculty appreciation days, arranging for Bookstore volunteers, and organizing the Annual Spring Dinner. The Parents Group also directs monies raised to the faculty through an Allocations Committee.

Five business meetings are held by the Parents Group each year, typically on weekdays. One of the most important of these is the opening meeting and coffee at which the year's goals, objectives, and fundraising events are discussed. The Parents Group also hosts Parents Nights held in the fall for parents to visit their children's classrooms.
