Parents in Front of School

 

The community is important to St. Bernard High School. Active participation and collaboration between Parents, Faculty, and Staff are critical to the success of our innovative learning environment that nurtures every student. The Parent Association (PA) promotes and helps to advance the welfare of St. Bernard High School, while coordinating the volunteer fundraising activities. All parents and guardians of St. Bernard High School students are members and we encourage you to attend the monthly PA meetings and events throughout the year.  

 

To contact a PA Officer or share ideas and feedback, please send an email to ParentAssociation@stbernardhs.org   

Our Goals

 
  • Keep St. Bernard High School parents informed of current activities and events

  • Listen to parental concerns and support new ideas

  • Encourage parents to get involved in service opportunities
 

Parent Volunteer Hours

Each family is required to complete 25 service hours during the school year. Your service hours can be completed by volunteering your time at various school events or by donating goods. All parent hours must be done at SBHS to benefit SBHS. To identify convenient ways to serve, review a list of events on the St. Bernard’s SignUp.com page. No login or account creation is necessary. Simply confirm your email address and start choosing your volunteer spots! Using SignUp.com allows us to manage the fulfillment of volunteer spots and your pledge to donate items. After you serve your hours please create an account with MobileServe and log your hours in there for credit. Instructions on how to set up a MobileServe account are below. 

Here is a list of some of the PA-sponsored events throughout the year:

  • Garden Beautification Day
  • Lady Viking Christmas Tea
  • Grandparents Day
  • Teacher Appreciation Luncheon
  • Student Appreciation Days

Parent Testimonials

 

I couldn’t have asked for a better high school experience for my son.  He is flourishing in academics, student leadership, sports (cross country and track and field) and campus ministry. His enthusiasm and passion for St. Bernard’s led me to be more involved with the aren’t association and I am even exceeding the hours needed for parent volunteer hours. Go Vikings!
Mrs. Yvette Bentley, Parent '19

 
As an alum, I enjoy / love / desire … I love the fact that my son, Darren Walker (Class of 2015), is able to go there and receive a quality education.  While it is much smaller than when I attended 1988-1992, I truly value the small class size and personal 1:1 attention that he is receiving.
Tracie N. Hunter, Parent ’15.  Tracie N. Matthews, Class of 1992
