Parent Association & Volunteers

To support the foundation and heritage of Bishop Machebeuf High School through parent and guardian involvement and commitment.

Our vision is to increase parent and guardian involvement by respecting our obligation through volunteerism. This will be pursued by involvement in the community on behalf of the students, faculty, and administration.

Our commitment will continue to nurture the existing environment of Christian morality, unity, cultural variety and values.

Our financial obligation is to provide enhancement of the academic, spiritual life and extra curriculum activities of the Bishop Machebeuf community.
