Parents, as the primary educators of their children, are invited and encouraged to participate in the activities of the school community. St. Joseph School is blessed with dedicated and committed families who give generously of their time, talent, and treasures to enrich the lives of their students and each other. Every family is required to volunteer thirty-five hours of service each year, twenty general hours and fifteen fundraising hours. Participation includes, but is not limited to, work in the classroom, field trips, help at fundraisers, School Board and PTG Board membership, parish ministries, performing arts, and CYO. Parents are also expected to be a part of the fundraising efforts at the school each year. Specific details are outlined in our handbook.
