The Role of STAP
The Saint Theresa Association of Parents (STAP) supports our school’s mission, faculty, and administration to enrich our children’s educational, social, emotional, and spiritual growth. By fostering positive, caring, and kind relationships among school families and faculty, we model for all students, a mature conception of compassion, courage, and generosity in action, through our service of one another and to others.
The objectives of STAP are to…
- Establish and maintain a working relationship among parents, school and community.
- Support school improvement teams and promote the finest education possible for the students at Saint Theresa Catholic School.
- Increase student safety and security.
- Enhance the quality of education by raising funds for school supplies or programs that fall outside of the school budget.
The STAP does…
- support the educational programs and extracurricular activities of the school.
- encourage parents’ involvement in their individual children’s lives, education, class, and school.
- provide feedback and suggestions for school programs.
- coordinate programs and projects that will support or enrich the curriculum.
- support the educational goals of the school and assist with attaining those goals through parent and community volunteerism.
- provide feedback/assist with increased awareness of school safety and security issues.
- organize fundraising efforts to support some additional programs, equipment, and services not covered in the school budget.
- recruit volunteers and coordinate volunteer efforts to staff STAP functions and assist with school programs.
- stay aware of legislation and political issues that may impact education and schools.
- a lot!
