Parent Organization

The Parent Organization (PO) is one of the backbones of Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School. It comprises all parents at our School, from those with students in the our Early Childhood Academy and students in PK through Eighth Grade.

  • The PO provides room parents and volunteers for School events and activities.

  • Room parents collect fees for parties and funds for Auction baskets/projects at the beginning of each year.

  • Room parents call parents in case of school closures or emergencies.

  • The PO sponsors the Jaguar Fund campaign, the year-round Uniform Exchange program, and the Auction; it promotes the School in every possible way.

  • The biggest PO fundraising event of the School year is the Jaguar Fund.

Opportunities to Volunteer

At Saint Joseph's Episcopal School, we love for parents to be part of the work we do for children. Opportunities abound for volunteering, such as the following: helping with our Back to School Barbecue, ice cream sales on Fridays, chaperoning field trips with your child(ren)’s classes, working as a room parent, helping Jennifer Williams in the Whitney Library, serving as a Coach or Assistant Coach of one of our athletic teams, and working on the Auction committee. Everything we do benefits our students.
