Student Family Organization

Our Story

In 2022, Holy Trinity Catholic School became a piloting school for the regional Leadership Council program, also known as the Student Family Organization (SFO). The SFO combines the Board of Education (BOE) responsibilities and the programs managed by the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).

The SFO is made up of every Holy Trinity parent, guardian, teacher, and administrator. Participating in SFO activities is the best way to get involved and meet members of the Holy Trinity community. Don’t worry! You can volunteer as much or as little as you want, and current SFO members are always happy to welcome new people to the group!

Grievance Procedure – Policy 310.2

If parents, guardians, and students have concerns about unfair treatment, they must contact the faculty and staff members involved first. The school leadership refers parents, guardians, and students to the parties involved to settle disagreements.

If parents, guardians, students, faculty, and staff cannot agree, they must contact the principal to settle disputes. If the principal cannot settle disputes, the concerned parties must appeal to the SFO. Parents, guardians, and students should contact the SFO president or the principal at least ten days before a meeting and then make comments during the allotted Open Forum portion of the meeting.
