DeSales Catholic School - Parents - Lockport NY

Involvement Opportunities

The commitment of our parents and caregivers is a big reason for the success of DeSales.  Get involved by attending the monthly Home School Association Meetings, by chairing or joining a Board or HSA Standing committee (see the Committee descriptions below), by sharing your ideas with teachers and administrators, or by volunteering your time as a Classroom Parent. As an added incentive, every parent attending our H.S.A. meetings is entered in a monthly prize drawing... just for showing up! 

Home School Association

Each year the H.S.A. sponsors two major fundraising events: a Cash Raffle Cocktail Party in the Fall, and an Auction Dinner in the Spring. Parent Participation in these fundraisers is essential, since a portion of the funds raised by the H.S.A. is pledged to the school's operating budget. The success of these events has a direct impact on all of our families! Without these fundraising efforts, DeSales tuition rates would rise dramatically! Get involved with your school - it truly makes a difference in your child's life!

Board of Trustees

The majority of Board work is done in the Standing Committees. Each Standing Committee is chaired by a Trustee, but membership is open to anyone interested in furthering the mission and vision of our school -- including parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, and community members. 

As a committee member, you would be asked to give approximately one hour per month for committee meetings.  Your role would be to provide advice and direction so that the board can better manage and direct the school. 

For more information about being on the Advisory Council or specific information on any of the committees listed below, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 716.434.6422 Ext.407.
