About

Parent Involvement

We are blessed to have parents who share their time and talents with the whole PVI community.
At St. Paul VI Catholic High School, our main focus is to graduate students who are ready and willing to make a difference in their communities. During their four years at PVI, our students learn to lead from a variety of role models--some of the best of those mentors are the Panther Parents who volunteer through our five main parent organizations.

Panther Parent Organization (PPO)

The mission of the Panther Parent Organization is to foster a spirit of community and collaboration among administrators, teachers, parents, and students through service to the school and community by providing volunteer opportunities, social events, and programs. There are many opportunities to volunteer and get involved. Most of these are a small time commitment so please consider volunteering your time. Please join us as we continue to make PVI an excellent school for our students and families!

PPO volunteers help with:
  • coordinating a faculty breakfast and lunch once each year
  • providing students with treats on special occasions
  • organizing parent events that include speakers, roundtable discussions and opportunities to meet with other parents
  • presenting our teachers with small tokens of appreciation at Christmas and the end of the year
  • sponsoring mock practice SATs and ACTs

Music Boosters

The mission of the Music Boosters is to provide organizational and financial support for the PVI music program. Our goal is to assist the faculty so the music program runs smoothly and our students have access to many opportunities to grow as musicians and young adults. The Music Boosters rely on fundraising and sponsorships to make all these activities possible for our students. Whether your child is a member of a performing ensemble or not, we ask that all PVI families show their support for PVI music by becoming a Music Boosters sponsor.

Music Boosters help with:
  • chaperoning performances throughout the school year
  • coordinating the rental of concert attire that all students are required to wear during performances
  • providing concert, performance and reception support
  • managing fundraising that provides for new equipment and learning opportunities for our music students
  • overseeing communication between the music directors and music families, as well as promoting PVI Music to our community and our future Panthers in the diocesan elementary schools.

Theater Boosters
