The St. Joseph Parent-Teacher Organization exists to create greater collaboration between both parents and faculty of St. Joseph Catholic School. Meeting monthly, the SJS PTO supports the mission of St. Joseph Catholic School by assisting in fundraising efforts in both fall and spring semesters, providing support for the faculty, and organizing school service activities such as fall and spring workdays. The St. Joseph Catholic School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a faith based entity comprised of the parents, teachers, and the parish of St. Joseph for the purpose of promoting and ensuring the spiritual and educational excellence of St. Joseph Catholic School.
