PTU

PTU LogoThe PTU (Parent-Teacher Union) is a group of parent volunteers who offer their time and talents to enhance our children’s educational experience at St. Rita School. The PTU Board is comprised of parents, teachers and administrators who attend monthly meetings to collaborate and make decisions for the betterment of the school.

The PTU is the major fundraising arm of the school, helping to fund capital improvements to school facilities, host assemblies, offer supplemental support for classroom materials, field trips, and much MUCH more.
