Cardinal Newsletter-PTCO

Dear Divine Redeemer Catholic School Families,

I am Andrew Harry, your 2022-2023 Divine Redeemer Parent-Teacher-Community Organization (PTCO) President. 

The PTCO raises funds and supports the mission of Divine Redeemer Catholic School to "challenge students through faith, academics, and service to live the values of the Roman Catholic Church in a changing world." We also strive to promote a closer relationship among parents, faculty, community members, and students. We encourage unity to secure the highest degree of physical, mental, social, and religious education for students enrolled in Divine Redeemer School. We also assist and support in providing the general needs of the school in ways to be determined by the PTCO. 

In this changing world, this year the PTCO will focus on raising funds to increase security for our school and to protect our children and staff. We need your help to be successful. 

Please join us at the next PTCO meeting in the school cafeteria on Thursday, August 25 at 3:15 pm.
