of the School Board is to develop, formulate, and recommend to the
Pastor educational programs for St. Rose of Lima School. These parent
volunteers are involved in such matters as formulation of grants, public
relations, maintenance, and major fundraising activities. The Board
promotes the implementation of these policies, once approved by the
Pastor, and evaluates their effectiveness. The implementation of policy
is the responsibility of the Pastor through the Principal. The Diocese
of Rockville Centre designs the guidelines which govern the Board.
Meetings are held monthly, from September through June.
The School Board is responsible for fundraising that accounts for
approximately 12% of the operating budget of the school. This includes
the Family Festival, our largest fundraiser; our annual Auction; the
SCRIP "effortless" fundraising program; the Christmas Fair; and the
Ladies ' Night Out.
In addition, the Board oversees the Parents' Social and "Buddy Program"
for new school families, the Hot Lunch Program, and contributes to the
planning for Catholic Schools' Week each January.
