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.

2017-18 PA Nominations

The Visitation Parents' Association is seeking members to fill open positions and join a dynamic team of volunteers! Positions currently open for nominations include Executive Committee positions, Class Representatives and Assistants. Nominate another parent or you can nominate yourself. Joining the Parents' Association is a wonderful way to see another side of the Visitation experience and meet new families.

For more information, please contact Paula O'Keefe, Parents' Association president. Also, you are welcome to attend our meeting on Tuesday, April 4, at 7:45 a.m. in the Ain Karim dining room. You do not have to attend the meeting to apply for a position.

Please contact any current Parents' Association representative with questions. All nominations and selections will be reviewed by the Executive Committee and the Division Directors, and volunteers will be notified of their positions in late April.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, April 7. Download the nomination form here. Please email the nomination form to Paula O'Keefe or Vickey Dudley.

Mission

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.
