About the IWHS Parent Teacher Organization
Incarnate Word High School PTO is a group of 20 active, dedicated parents supported by the Principal Miss Jennifer Salazar, Faculty Representative TBA, and Amy DeAtley of UIW Business Office. Serving as an executive board member or committee chair sets an example of service and leadership for our daughters, builds lasting friendships, and promotes the mission of Incarnate Word High School. We depend on all parent volunteers to organize and execute the many traditions and special events for administration, faculty, staff and students.
Your ideas and enthusiasm for the Shamrock community are always welcome. Research states there is a direct correlation between young adults’ academic success and parent involvement. Your daughter’s high school years are a precious and short time in her life. PTO encourages you to become a special part of the memories she is making.
To promote the mission that the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word began 135 years ago both within our school and to potential families choosing a Catholic High School for their daughter(s).
To promote local causes that support our students, such as Hope for the Future, Women’s Global Connection, Christus Santa Rosa Mobile Mammography in honor of “The Sisters’ Trail” and scholarships to graduating seniors entering college.
To continue the updates of the campus through various projects .
