Parent Teacher Guild (PTG)
Every parent at Holy Sepulcher School is a member of the PTG. The PTG sponsors and supplements the social and educational activities at the school, though it does not make or determine policy. The PTG is part of the Holy Sepulcher School Team.
Meetings are held quarterly and we welcome your participation! PTG officers are elected for each school year.

Why we volunteer:
When you set up for Grandparents Day or Veterans Day, help at the bookfair or elf store, raise money for the Hornets Challenge, attend the Gala, come into the classroom for parties or send in needed items for events, you are not just helping our school, you are showing your own child the importance of helping others. One day, your child, drawing from memories of their parents helping at the Pancake Breakfast or helping with a school activity, will be more likely to step up as a volunteer at their child’s school. Research shows that the drive to volunteer can be intergenerational, much like family traditions and personality traits are passed along. There is evidence of this as some of today’s volunteers were raised by a parent that volunteered! Now those leaders are paying it forward and serving as role models for their own children. Thank you for helping us pay it forward by volunteering and spreading the message of Jesus through our actions!

School Advisory Board
In striving to create schools which exhibit both excellence in every area of curriculum and a strong, vibrant Catholic identity, the Diocese of Pittsburgh recognizes the value of School Advisory Councils. By drawing upon the expertise of the larger community and building partnerships with interested persons, Holy Sepulcher Catholic School will reap a wealth of benefits from the consultation given by a School Advisory Council. School Advisory Councils can play a critical role in offering assistance, advice and support to the Principal.
The School Advisory Council of Holy Sepulcher Parish is a body whose members are selected elected through a process determined by the Pastor and who are expected to participate in offering expertise and assistance in designated areas of responsibility to the Principal. School Advisory Councils do not have the power to enact policy, but exist to offer advice, guidance, and support to the Principal in specific areas as requested by the Pastor and Principal. Such advice and assistance are especially encouraged in the areas of public relations, student retention and recruitment, fundraising and development, and the strengthening of parental and community support for the school. The Principal is responsible for the operation of the school and its programs and he or she is accountable solely to the Pastor.
