PAPA (Parents As Partners Association)
The PAPA (Parents As Partners Association) is an organization of parents who are dedicated to enhancing the academic and spiritual development of each child at St. Isidore School, while strengthening our school and family & friends bonds. To meet these goals, PAPA hosts a variety of events and activities designed to build our community.

The PAPA Board consists of the President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. Elections (volunteers) are held to determine board members. Each month the Board holds an executive session followed by an open session. The open session, all parents are welcome, usually from 7:00-8:00pm on the same day of each month (ie: first Monday of the month) in school classrooms.
The PAPA Board works with parents to organize social events and fundraisers throughout the school year. Parents who volunteer for these events receive volunteer units; after accumulating four volunteer units, the family is eligible for reduced tuition for the next school year (also requires that parish donations are satisfied).
For parents who want to receive the maximum tuition credit they must earn 4 credits. In most cases, volunteering for an event will earn 1 credit. Parents who attend 50% of either Social or Fundraising committee meetings will get 1 credit. Any family member can attend. If parents attend every meeting, they can earn 2 credits.
PAPA hosts a variety of events and activities designed to build our community.
For each PAPA event or activity, PAPA oversees a “committee” that consists of parent volunteers. The committee will coordinate all the details to make the event a success. Parents who coordinate an event receive 2-4 volunteer units (depending on event). The committee reports their progress to the PAPA Board at monthly meetings and via email.
