Thank you for your interest in the Guerin Catholic High School Parent Guild!

To our Guerin Catholic Parents:

Welcome, Golden Eagle parents, to the 2020-21 school year! Parent Guild is Guerin Catholic High School’s “PTO.”  Our mission is to support our students, faculty, staff and families.

You are invited to participate in a variety of Parent Guild activities, many of which will look different this year, due to the pandemic.  Below are descriptions of different ways to volunteer. Time commitments are included, and vary from very little to more involved.

Please stay tuned to the weekly Friday Updates, as changes and additions to Parent Guild activities will be announced in the weekly newsletter.

We support our students by:

– Assisting with Nest Fest, Homecoming, Winter Semi-Formal and Prom
– Selling snacks every day after school at the Golden Eagle Snack Stand

We support our faculty and staff by:

– Providing each teacher $100 at the beginning of the school year to help with supplies
– Purchasing bigger “Wish List” items for teachers not in the budget (Just a few examples from the past school year are: a new kiln, various camera equipment, furniture, and books.
– Weekly Tuesday Treats, dinner on Progress Report Nights
– Teacher Appreciation Week luncheon

We support our families by:

– Hosting the All Parent Coffee
– Providing lunch for all Nest Fest participants

None of this would be possible without Parent Guild’s fundraising efforts, i.e. TRIVIA NIGHT, Parent Guild $25 Dues collection, Snack Stand revenue and various business incentives (Kroger, AmazonSmile, etc)

To successfully carry out this mission, we need every parent’s help. Check out the committee descriptions below and discern what might be a good fit for you. Be sure to check which committees you are interested in when filling out your PG Registration Form (located under “Files & Forms” in GC Gateway). If you are unsure how to register for PG, feel free to contact me at the phone number/email below.
