St. Joseph's has a strong
and active volunteer program coordinated through
the Home and School Association (HSA).
All St. Joseph's parents automatically
belong to the HSA and are invited to attend
meetings and activities.
function of the HSA is to organize the school's
volunteers and fund-raising efforts.
volunteers who work with our students will be
required to attend a “Safe Environment Workshop”
and have a criminal background check and of
course, the utmost confidentiality is expected.
profits from the fund-raising projects are used
for operating expenses of the school.
The parents of St. Joseph's students make a significant contribution to the smooth functioning and available resources of our school. Parental presence, involvement and confidentiality are extensive and greatly appreciated by the students, staff, and School Board. As a result of the great visibility of our parents on campus and at community attended events, it is imperative that our presence at all times be directed toward meeting the needs of our children and staff and be representative of the religious philosophy of our school.
How many volunteer hours are required each school year?

give at least 20 hours of service to the school
during the year.

to keep at home.
