Parent Action Association (PAA)
PAA January 2021 Newsletter
The Parent Action Association (PAA) is an active group of parents who support St. Odilia School. The PAA has three main goals:
- Build community by supporting teachers, providing hospitality, and responding to parent needs
- Provide volunteer support for school programs
- Keep tuition reasonable through fundraising
All parents of St. Odilia students are members of this association.
The PAA is explained more thoroughly in our school handbook.

We value our parents and their desire to be involved in our school. Being “involved” can mean many things to many people. To us, it means participating in class, grade, or school-wide events meant to support our school and enhance the educational environment. When we are all-in and help when we can, our school gets better!
This year, room parents will operate differently than they have in the past. Traditionally, room parents helped with class communications, event/party organization and volunteer coordination for class, grade and school wide events. Details about the room parent role this school year are still being developed. If you are interested in being a room parent or have ideas about the role of a room parent, please contact Angie.
Here are some easy ways to help St. Odilia School get cash to use for school supplies, equipment and more!
Amazon Smile is a simple way for you to support St. Odilia every time you shop atsmile.amazon.com. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of purchase price from eligible AmazonSmile purchases. Please select the School of St. Odilia Church as your charitable organization.
Cut out the box top on eligible products found on the Box Tops 4 Education website. You can either use the collection sheet found on the school’s website as a family fun activity or simply place them in the container in the school lobby marked for Box Tops. We’ll take care of the rest – it’s as easy as that!
To earn more box tops, register online and select St. Odilia as your school, shop on the box tops website featuring over 170 retailers and earn e-box tops for the school! Last year we raised nearly $2,000 and this year we have a larger goal to meet! Each Box Top is worth 10 cents!
