Parents Asked To Attend “Mission vs. Market” Presentation

Parents of all incoming 8th and 9th grade students are required to attend one of two upcoming presentations titled íÍMission vs. Marketíñ in the CHS Gymnasium on Sunday, August 30, at 6 p.m. or Tuesday, September 1, at 5:30 p.m.  The purpose of these presentations is to inform parents of the reason behind and the importance of our Parents Annual Giving Event (PAGE) program.

íÍThe íîmandatory meetingí´ model began last year and resulted in the most successful PAGE campaign in the schoolí´s history.  Because of the level of support that we received, we were able to limit tuition increases for the 2009-2010 school year, significantly increase money budgeted for faculty in-service training, increase the budget for instructional technology by more than 40 percent and increase faculty and staff compensation and benefits,íñ commented Gene Tullier, CHS president.

PAGE is an opportunity for parents to invest and partner in their soní´s education on a tax-deductible basis.  As with all Brothers of the Sacred Heart Schools, CHS strives to remain cost-accessible to as many families as possible. PAGE gifts go directly into the schoolí´s operational budget and are used to fund many aspects of the schoolí´s daily operation, including teacherí´s salaries.

The chaircouple for the 2009-10 PAGE program is Joe and Judith Kelly.  Joe and Judith are the parents of Knox í´08 and Graves íî10.  For more information, parents can contact the CHS Office of Advancement at (225) 389-0978 or hdupuy@catholichigh.org.
