The St. Joseph Home & School Association was formed to offer a liaison between the parents and the school. We operate under the guidance of the Saint Joseph School Board.
COMMUNICATION: Our quarterly meetings offer parents a forum to voice their opinions and concerns. School issues are discussed with questions and answers after each program. Each meeting is approximately one hour, which allows parents to come together and participate in making our school an outstanding educational facility for our children. Details of traditional events such as the Back to School Picnic, Mum Parade, Oktoberfest, Auction, Grandparents and Special Friends Day, Lenten Pasta Dinner, Father/Daughter Dance, Mother/Son Bowling, Parent Socials and the Golf Tournament, and more are all discussed at the meetings with additional details provided in weekly communication emails from the School Office. To make sure your children are benefiting from what the school has to offer each family, it is vital that you attend these meetings throughout the year.
COMMUNITY & FUNDRAISING: The Home & School Association also functions as a catalyst for fundraisers and social functions, which allow families to have fun, develop camaraderie and keeps tuition at manageable levels. We invite all families to take part in our social and family activities. The St. Joseph Hone & School Association is also about the money. We are a completely volunteer organization giving our time freely to make Saint Joseph School the “best of the best” when it comes to the education of our children. In doing so, we are dedicated to raising funds to support our school. The Association is always receptive to new ideas and suggestions and are always available to parents before (by appointment) and after our meetings. We ask that every parent take the personal responsibility to support the fundraising events that are conducted throughout the school year.
