Parents Club Overview
The St. Joseph School Parents Club is committed to developing
a climate that promotes Catholic faith and community building
for our families. We will seek to instill supportive and cooperative
efforts from our school families and build a sense of greater
community, respect and positive relationships among our families,
students and staff.
Our objectives are as follows:
- To promote and provide spiritual growth for all SJS families.
- To help parents and teachers acquire a profound appreciation
of the Catholic education.
- To aid the faculty and students through service, projects
and fundraising efforts.

responsibilities of parents and teachers.

needs of SJS.
