Research reports that parental involvement is a key ingredient to a
student's success. As the parent/guardian of a Holyoke Catholic student,
you play an important role in the academic success of your son or daughter.
From supporting the curriculum at home, to attending athletic events,
theatre performances, and participating in various fund raising activities,
HCHS parents are partners in the school's mission.
The Parent Partnership is an integral part of the HCHS community. Its
members are parents, guardians, grandparents and friends who are passionate
about enriching the HCHS experience for its students. The Parent Partnership
raises funds to support the school's budget and champions parent involvement
as being critical to the overall success of the school. It also promotes
communication among the principal, faculty/staff and parents of the
students who attend HCHS.
There are no membership fees or dues - all parents/guardians and grandparents
are automatically members of the Parent Partnership. If you are interested
in getting involved, please review the list of volunteer opportunities.
"I see Holyoke Catholic as a combination of students, faculty
and administrators working together in a wonderful educational environment,
a school system that is the envy of all others in the western MA area."
