Parent School Association (PSA)
Saint Joseph School is well-served by a strong partnership between Parents, School Administrators, and Teachers, evidenced by a robust volunteer program and frequent opportunities to connect on school-related issues. One of the best parts of our school community is being part of the “Parent School Association” (PSA). You’ll meet fellow parents, plan fun school-wide events, and get a chance to be involved in your student(s) school life.
We are always looking for parents to help out with school community events!
Your Parent School Association (PSA) fosters this partnership by:
- Managing our volunteer programs including lunch-recess volunteers, and family events
- Enhancing the school-home communication
- Developing parent enrichment programs
All Saint Joseph School parents/guardians are automatically members of the PSA. There is no need to sign up, and we do not solicit dues.

The PSA is also proud to create special memories for our students and their families with our Community Events held throughout the year. If you ask our students, they will rave about our Community Events - from the Street Hockey Tournament and Trunk-or-Treat to Field Day to the famous End-of-Year party. Don't miss any of the action, make sure to visit the Community Events Calendar.
We welcome your active involvement in our volunteer program. Your participation is the key to our success. It takes a small army to offer our children all the "extras" that parent volunteers are responsible for - from Pizza Fridays and Trunk-Or-Treat to Field Day and the End of the Year Party.
