The PTU (Parent Teacher Union) is a group of parent volunteers who offer their time and talents to enhance our children’s educational experience at Saint Rita School. The PTU Board is comprised of parents, teachers, and administrators who attend monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of each month to collaborate and make decisions for the betterment of the school. The PTU is the major fundraising arm of the school, helping to fund capital improvements to school facilities, host assemblies, offer supplemental support for classroom materials, field trips, and much MUCH more.
Are you Interested in Becoming a Board Member? We invite anyone interested in joining the PTU Board to attend a General Meeting and see what we're all about! Interested parents can contact PTU Co-Presidents, Julianne Ella or Missy Sanchez for more information.
Many hands make light the work, and the PTU welcome all parents to join us for our monthly meetings! This is a wonderful opportunity for you to participate in the school experience with your child(ren)!
