About Us

Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO)

The primary purpose of the PTO is to support the ongoing mission of Saint Joseph Catholic School. Through the PTO, parents/guardians and teachers strive to build community, strengthen communications, and provide resources necessary to support the school and the programs it offers. The PTO is also a forum for exchanging thoughts, expressing ideas and sharing experiences. There are many opportunities to volunteer and become an active part of your child’s school and to make lifelong friends in the PTO.

Saint Joseph PTO Opportunities

Some of the programs sponsored by the PTO include Arts Alive! which brings performers to the school; field trips for all students; the Fall Festival; Mother-Son Bowling; the Father-Daughter Dance; and lunch for the Saint Joseph Feast Day.

The PTO has two major fundraisers during the school year including The Annual Auction, an event for adults which is held in the fall and a spring fundraiser.
