A “Thank You” from the Parent Engagement Group

Posted December 18th, 2012


The Parent Engagement Group, a subcommittee of the Development Council, organized the 2012 Faculty/Staff Christmas Fund (you can read more about their outreach efforts here) to honor the work of the faculty and staff of St. Augustine Prep.

The Parent Engagement Group, co-chaired by Mrs. Barbara Washington and Mr. R. Blake Christy (Class of 1983), was formed “to foster a feeling of goodwill and camaraderie with the Prep Community, ” and in this instance, they have provided an opportunity for parents to express that feeling of goodwill to the faculty and staff who are charged with both the intellectual and the spiritual formation of their sons. The Parent Engagement Group will continue to accept donations to the Faculty/Staff Christmas Fund through Thursday, December 31, 2012.
