Parent/Teacher Organization

"Today's Catholic school…is a center in which parents and teachers, guided by the Holy Spirit, collaborate in giving children a complete Catholic education." 

National Conference of Catholic Bishops, Teach Them: Statement on Catholic Schools

The Parent Teacher Organization is comprised of all parents of students attending St. Joseph Catholic School. Parents are an important part of any child’s education and development. At St. Joseph Catholic School, we encourage parents to be involved in their child’s school life through volunteerism on committees, in the classroom, and staying connected through different communication channels. The PTO provides great support for our school through special events and fundraisers. 

 

  • Volunteering: We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities that can fit anyone’s schedule and skills:  even if you have young ones at home, even if you aren’t sure how you can help, even if you only have an hour or an evening… for a little job or a big job.

 

  • Fundraiser Support: The PTO sponsors fundraising activities throughout the year. Through various sales, promotions, and events we generate the funds to cover many school-wide needs not supported by other school budgets. Our fundraising dollars cover scholarships, enrichment programs and technology development & enhancements in our school.
