Dear St. Serra Parents:

The Consultative School Board (CSB) at St. Serra is made up of members of our Leadership Team, staff, and school parents, many of whom have specialized expertise in areas such as finance, marketing and education. The board serves in an advisory capacity and collaborates with the Leadership Team and staff on a variety of policies, programs, services, special projects and strategic plans throughout the course of the school year. Their high level of integrity, along with their focus on the good of the entire school community, demonstrates their strong commitment to St. Serra.


Our 2022-2023 St. Serra Consultative School Board can be viewed here. Please join me in welcoming these board members for the 2022-23 school year. 

Always striving,

Tim Tolzda

Sr. Principal


Reminder: We have STAR Assessment Testing all this week
