Parents' Association Mission Statement

The Parents’ Association (“PA”) is a service organization of involved parents of students enrolled at The Regis School of the Sacred Heart (the “School”). The PA’s objectives are threefold:

  • To provide support, education, and communication among students, teachers, parents, and the Board;
  • To build and strengthen community with mutual respect, instilling Sacred Heart values and the Regis tradition;
  • To provide support for parent education concerning student academic and social development.

The PA sponsors special events and promotes specific fundraising efforts, provides cultural and program enrichment, and supports the marketing and outreach efforts of the School Administration.

Organizational Structure

Vice President – Communication
Immediate Past-President
Parents’ Association Liaison (ex-officio)
Head of School (ex-officio)


Officers are elected to a one-year term with the exception of VP positions which require a two-year commitment. New elections are held in the spring of each year during a regularly-scheduled meeting. In the event of an officer position opening during the school year, a special election will be held.


Nominations for open officer positions, including President-Elect and Vice Presidents, are submitted to the Executive Committee in the spring. The President-Elect will automatically assume the President position at the end of the one-year term as President-Elect. The President presents the nominees to the Executive Committee, which makes the final selections. Newly elected officers will be announced prior to the end of the school year.


All parents of enrolled students are automatically members. Employees of the School and members of the Board of Directors, whose sons are enrolled as students, are also members of the Parents’ Association although they may not hold office or serve as officers.


Membership dues in the amount of $50 per family are collected concurrently with tuition to cover the necessary costs of the PA.


The PA meets monthly, with the exception of December and March. Meetings are open to all Regis parents and should be attended by all Executive Committee members, Committee Chairpersons, and Class Coordinators.

Parents, Volunteers & Visitors

Sign-In Procedures: All visitors must enter through the front door of the Milestones Building. For security reasons, all parents, volunteers, and visitors must sign in at the front desk. Badges will be provided to indicate you have signed in. Those without badges will be asked to obtain one at the front desk. To prevent distractions and disruptions, only students and school personnel may go directly to the classrooms. All messages for volunteers will be left at the front desk. Please check with the receptionist when you sign out.

We are dedicated to providing maximum classroom instructional time to our students and staff. When picking up a student, parents are to wait in the Milestones Building foyer for their child to be sent to them. This procedure is especially important at dismissal times.


Parents and legal guardians are expected to be respectful and cooperate with The Regis School of the Sacred Heart with respect to all decisions affecting the student. Continued enrollment of a student is contingent upon the parents/guardians abiding by school rules and the decisions of the administration. At Regis’ discretion, behavior of a parent or legal guardian which impedes the school’s ability to meet its educational objectives or makes a positive or constructive relationship impossible, may result in suspension or expulsion of a student, separate and apart from the student’s conduct. No refund of tuition or fees will be made if a student is required to withdraw or is expelled as a result of the actions of his parent or other legally responsible adult.
