The School Advisory Council
provides parishioners with an appropriate representative body for
identifying and articulating the educational needs and aspirations of St.
Alphonsus/St. Patrick's School. The council acts in an advisory capacity
to the pastors and principal in formulating and evaluating policies for
the Parish school. The council also monitors and provides assistance to
the pastors and principal in implementing these policies.
The Advisory Council

both St. Alphonsus and St. Patrick's Parish. Parishioners of either parish
and parents of children attending the school are eligible for election.
All parishioners are invited to attend the meetings. Please contact the
school office for more information.
