Bishop McNamara


Bishop McNamara Catholic School thrives on parent and teacher involvement to help enrich our school community. When parents unite, our school becomes stronger. Our parent organization, known as Mac PAC (Parent Action Committee), welcomes involvement from all parents throughout the year. Whether you can volunteer for one hour, one day, or one committee - we are grateful!

According to the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory, students with involved parents are more likely to earn higher grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs; be promoted, pass their classes, and earn credits; attend school regularly; have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school; and graduate and go on to postsecondary education.

We look forward to working with you, our volunteers, to make our students' school-life experience the best ever!
