It is easier than ever to get involved, and we would love your help!

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 schoolwide events, and get a chance to be involved in your student(s) school life!
PSA Event Chair and Committee Volunteers
If you ask our students, they will rave about our community events - from the Street Hockey Tournament and Trunk-or-Treat to Field Day and the famous End-of-Year-Party.  There are so many opportunities to help create special memories for our students and their families.  These events are led by our Parent School Association, and we welcome volunteers to chair events or to be part of the planning committees.
Room Parents Role
Room parents communicate with other class parents regarding non-academic activities in the classroom.  You will coordinate classroom parties (Halloween & Valentines Day), forward messages to your class parents regarding events or programs (i.e. classroom Wish Tree) when requested by the teacher and/or administration, and help with teacher appreciation recognition.
Parent Ambassadors
Our hope is that parent ambassadors can act as " guardian angels" for new families throughout the entire year.  We are looking for families who love St. Joe's and want to welcome and guide new families into our school community.  Starting a new school can be overwhelming - uniforms, drop-off and pick-up procedures, volunteer opportunities - sign up to be a Parent Ambassador and help the newest members of our community.
Thank you very much for your continued support and interest!

Recess Volunteers

Recess at St. Joe's will look different this year, but we are still in need of volunteers. Please consider committing to a timeslot to assist staff during outdoor lunch recess. Volunteers will be asked to help make sure cohorts are staying in their assigned section. Masks are required and volunteers are asked to be mindful of social distancing guidelines. In the case of inclement weather/indoor recess, volunteers will not need to report to school. Please see the link below to sign up for a volunteer slot.

A few tips when using the SignUp Genius:

  • If you wish to volunteer for multiple roles and activities, you will need to access the sign-up sheets for each specific event.
  • When prompted, please enter your first and last name so that we know who you are (otherwise only your e-mail address will show).
  • If your last name differs from your child's name, consider hyphenating or adding his/her last name to yours when you are prompted, so you can be matched back.
  • Wondering who else is volunteering? Click on “Filled” for the role you are considering to view the volunteers who have already signed-up.
  • When you are finished selecting your volunteer commitments, remember to SAVE your entries before leaving SignUp Genius.
