Home and School Volunteer Opportunities for Parents

The StJP Home and School Association is an active organization that works to build a community connection between parents, teachers, staff and the students of St. Joseph the Protector School. Our efforts serve to enhance and maximize the education of every child while aiding them in achieving their highest potential.

Our mission is to provide parents and teachers a means of sharing and creating experiences for the benefit of the child, the school, and the home. Because we place the highest priority on the spiritual and moral development of our families and on their service towards others, we will strive to assist in providing an environment which integrates academic excellence with Catholic values.

Our goals include volunteerism of parents, encouragement of teachers and students, community involvement, and welfare of students and families.
