What is P.T.U.
The P.T.U. is a unit of parents and teachers working together for the common good of the school children here at Saint Clare. As a group, we raise funds to provide services and enrichment activities that would otherwise be unavailable to our school children. We also help to promote the spiritual and temporal welfare of all the children.
The ultimate goal of P.T.U. is to help Saint Clare School provide the very best education for all of our children. In order to accomplish this, we rely on the cooperation and generosity of all our members. We acknowledge that every parent with a student enrolled at Saint Clare School is a member of the P.T.U., since all of our children benefit from P.T.U.’s efforts.
