Parents

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.

Parent Partnership

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."

Athletic Booster Club

Holyoke Catholic's Athletic Booster Club is a volunteer support group for the school's athletic programs. Members include parents, guardians, grandparents and friends. The Booster Club's purpose is to encourage, support, and honor all student athletes, promote school spirit and encourage good sportsmanship.

Proceeds from the Booster Club's activities are used to fund sports banquets, recognize championship teams, provide senior awards and pay for sports related items not included in the school's budget. Past fund raisers have included the annual calendar raffle, managing the Holyoke Catholic BINGO concession, concession stands at various athletic games, and bus trips.

Membership in the Athletic Booster Club is open to any parent/guardian or grandparent of a Holyoke Catholic student.
