Parents' Association

The Visitation Parents' Association is YOU. As the parent of a Visitation student, you are a member of the Vis PA. Whether you choose to get involved by becoming a class representative, chairing an event or attending a PA-sponsored activity, we hope you find that your experience deepens your relationship with the school!

Visitation Parents' Association

The Parents' Association utilizes the talents and skills that exist within our community. Join the executive committee and other parents at our general meetings to discuss programmatic and business issues that affect our school and our children. Meeting dates are found on the calendar below.

Our parents fill important roles at Visitation. First and foremost, you are partners with the school staff in educating your children. You also volunteer countless hours in the Dining Room and The Peddler School Store. You provide your time, talent and treasure to make the Merrie Market Auction and Gala a tremendous fundraiser and "friendraiser." You provide timely feedback to help make Visitation a truly wonderful school and community.

Visitation parents may access special areas of this website by logging into the Parent Portal. This is also the area where we ask that families log-in to update their contact information, including mailing address, phone numbers and email addresses.


The purpose of the Visitation Parents' Association is to support the stated mission and core values of the school on behalf of its parent members as follows:

  • By promoting a sense of community among the parents of the Visitation school;
  • By providing a tool for strong communications between the parent body and the school’s administration and faculty; and
  • By raising funds, in cooperation with the Advancement Office, to provide financial support to the school.

For questions, concerns or comments, contact your class rep, division vice president or the PA president, Mary Kenkel.


The PA needs volunteers for the 2017-18 school year. If you would like to get involved, please fill out the volunteer opportunity form.

About Vis Dads

Vis Dads exists to create opportunities for dads and male guardians to get involved at Visitation on a "low commitment, high impact" basis. All dads and male guardians are automatically part of Vis Dads. We seek to:

  • Add value to the Visitation community.
  • Create fellowship among the dads, families and students.
  • Keep it simple, easy and fun.
  • Incorporate the Salesian traditions of Visitation.


For questions or to get involved, contact the Vis Dads PA Representative John Francis.
