Parents are an integral part of the parish and our school community. Below you will find information about the Parent Support Group and Local School Council.

Parent Support Group

The Parents' Support Group assists the Principal and School Council in meeting the financial, social and educational needs of the school community.

How can parents get involved at St. Joseph's School?
Parents are an integral part of the parish and school community and are encouraged to take part in the activities of the school. Parents provide the leadership needed for special activities, fund-raisers, socials and other community building events. St. Joseph’s School has an active Parents’ Support Group (PSG) which functions under the direction of the School Council. A parent liaison representative facilitates communication between the two organizations. Meetings are held once a month.
Who can belong to the Parents' Support Group?
Anyone who is a parent or guardian of a student at the school can belong to the group. The PSG is parent/guardian organized and managed. Members are elected annually for a two year term.
What does the Parents' Support Group do?

We organize large fundraisers such as the Hot Lunch Program and Musical Theatre Program. We also organize and host annual events such as Halloween Howl and the Tiki Tiki Fun Fair. Watch for other fundraising opportunities like monthly bake sales, and the Used Uniform Shop.  All proceeds are used to provide financial assistance for school programs, equipment, and recreational activities. We provide access to educational materials in the Parent Resource Center and foster community spirit within the school.
