What is the Home and School Association?

The Home and School Association is an organization much like a PTA. Its purpose is to promote better communication and cooperation between St. Johnís school and parents. The Home and School also supports the school financially with money earned through a few very successful fundraisers.

There are five general meetings throughout the year. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend these meetings to contribute your ideas and to keep up-to-date on school happenings. Every St. Johnís School family is a member of the Home and School Association. Annual membership dues are included in each yearís tuition.
