PTA is a support group of the school. Every school family is automatically a member with voting privileges. All parents/ guardians are strongly encouraged to be active members. The purpose of this organization is to encourage support among the school parents, socialize with each other, provide public relations on school related issues, and to raise funds and make decisions on how those funds are spent for the benefit of St. Joseph School.
PTA also serves as a vehicle for personal con- tact with the school and to promote home/school programs and projects. This is not a forum for concerns or grievances. Meetings are usually held on one Tuesday each month in the school auditorium. PTA officers are listed in the back of this handbook. Parents’ receive 1(one) hour volunteer service (per family) per meeting attended.
