Together We Can Make a Difference!
As a parent or guardian of a student at St. Paul Lutheran School, you are a member of St. Paul PTL (Parent Teacher League.) The education of your child requires strong partnerships between parents, teachers, and students. Christian education is a joint effort of the school and home. As a team, we can provide your child with the best experience possible.
The primary goals of St. Paul PTL are to support and encourage the children, teachers, and staff, to assist with needed improvements, and to facilitate fellowship among members of our team. The PTL relies strongly on the volunteerism of parents and teachers to achieve these goals. There are many areas in which to serve that can provide you with a strong connection to your child’s classroom and St. Paul school. We look forward to the many exciting PTL events that this year will bring. Blessings in Christ!
All parents/guardians, faculty and staff are members of the St. Paul Parent Teacher League. Active participation through service and fellowship opportunities provides a firm foundation on which to build solid, lasting relationships.
A Leadership Team sets the overall plan for the year and provides guidance for key committees. A request goes out for parents/guardians to act as committee leaders to help coordinate specified events or activities, such as our traditional Mayfest, restaurant social gatherings/fundraisers, and more.
PTL Meetings, Activities, and Volunteer Opportunities
The PTL Leadership Team, with input from the rest of the PTL, determines a schedule for meetings. PTL hosts several events throughout the school year, such as
- “1st Monday Munchies”, which takes place at several restaurants in Catonsville and our neighboring communities. The events take place on the first Monday of each month from October through May and encourage fellowship among students with their peers, teachers, and church members.
- School dances for all students and church families. Dances feature free admission, a live D.J., a dance contest, prizes, and refreshments.
- “Secret Santa Shop” every December for all the children ages 2 years old – 5th grade. The event spreads the holiday spirit and teaches the importance of budgeting during a fun shopping experience .
- “May Fest”, a huge spring festival hosted annually. Open to the entire community and providing fun for all ages in a safe environment, the festival includes games, dunk tank, crafts, moon bounces, petting zoo, pony rides, silent auctions, food, music, and more.
If an event warrants it, we ask for volunteers to form a committee to complete the project. Whether working on a large event with a PTL committee, assisting teachers, serving as a library helper or helping with hot lunch, there are many opportunities to get together, serve our students, and get better acquainted. We appreciate willing hearts and hands!
