Parent Teacher Group (PTG)

Mission and Purpose Statement

The SFdA PTG works to strengthen, enhance and encourage the education and social experience of San Francisco de Asis Catholic School.  Its mission is to build community through the support and involvement of students, faculty, staff and school families.  Through SFdA PTG programs and events, we complement the school curriculum with additional opportunities for parents, teachers and students to learn, socialize and grow.

What is PTG?

PTG stands for the Parent, Teacher Group. PTG is a group of parents and teachers that are here to support the school in many different ways.

What does PTG do?

Since SFdA is a private school it is necessary for the PTG to fundraise to provide special programs such as Spiritual Retreats, Masterminds, Catholic Schools Week, Science Fair, and JA Biztown.  PTG has also donated funds to the purchase of technology and other student enrichment within our school.  These are all programs that set our school apart from other schools to make it special for our students.

How many fundraisers does PTG do?

PTG has one big fundraiser usually in the Fall that provides the majority of the funds needed for the sponsored programs to continue. This fundraiser is called the Blue and White Banquet and Auction. Other fundraisers, such as taco night have been used to supplement PTG Income. 

Is PTG mandatory for all parents?

PTG is not mandatory because we know there are many places that parents are needed to volunteer within our school family that suits different talents and treasures that can be shared. All parents are encouraged to attend PTG meetings to see if there are opportunities within PTG to offer your assistance.

What kind of help does PTG need?

There will be many opportunities to fulfill your spirit hours within PTG. There will be many small projects that we can use your help with and larger projects that require more time and people.  Everyone has different talents and treasures to share, so we suggest you attend a PTG meeting to see how you can help. The more parents involved with PTG, the better!

Who makes up PTG?

PTG is made up of 4 board members, a member at large (who also acts as the School Board Liaison), two teachers and as many members as possible. Every parent or guardian is encouraged to participate in PTG. 

Why get involved in PTG?

Because we need your help! We are a Catholic community working together as a family for the benefit of all our children.
