Parent Teacher Organization
Parents are the first and best educators of their children. Therefore it is essential that the home and school work together in a spirit of harmony to develop, promote and protect the vision and mission of the school. The parent association is governed by a set of bylaws approved by the Pastor and the Diocese. All decisions or recommendations of Parent Associations are subject to approval by the Pastor and/or Principal. (more)
The School Council is a commission of St. Joseph Parish that assists the pastor and principal in carrying the common burden of operating a learning institution. It has the obligation of planning, assisting, and advising the pastor and principal in regard to the operations of the parish school. (more)
At St. Joseph Catholic School, stewardship is a guiding principal, not just for the students who attend our school, but for their families as well. Many of the jobs and work done at the school are performed by parishioners and school families. The work done to remodel classrooms and bathroom facilities, repairs and routine maintenance along with the job of cleaning the classrooms, hallways and bathrooms are all done by volunteers. During the fall enrollment period families are asked to sign up to help clean the school once during the first semester of the school year, and again once during the second semester.
Parents and grandparents also volunteer to help in the lunchroom, usually one day a week. Others assist with maintenance and upkeep around the school.
