PSA: Volunteer Now
As we prepare for the school year, we are looking for parents who want to get more involved. And while we don't want to overwhelm you before school officially begins for the academic year, we want to make sure you have ample opportunity to be as active a member of our community as you want to be. There are a number of ways, with varying levels of commitment, that you can be involved at St. Joe’s!
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 school-wide events, and get a chance to be involved in your student(s) school life!
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 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.
Volunteering at lunch and recess is a great way to give the teachers a break in their busy days and to catch a glimpse of your child in action! You will commit to a grade and a day of the week, and then will be assigned a monthly recurring commitment. If you cannot commit to a recurring spot, you can be added to the email distribution list for cancellation coverage. The link to sign up for lunch and recess volunteers will go out in September; Stay tuned!
