Each year, members of this talented and hardworking group gives generously of their time, supporting programs central to its mission -- student enrichment, professional development, financial aid, community building and outreach.From lunchroom, carpool, classroom involvement and teacher-appreciation events, to Carnival, Book Fair and the St. John's Speaker Series, the results touch virtually every aspect of St. John's -- and the community around us. The friendships and fun that happen along the way make this wonderful parent community the special group it is. View the 2018-19 PA Council.
Engaged parents. Exceptional faculty. Inspiring clergy. And wonderful kids. These are the members of the St. John's community, and all share the common goal of elevating the educational experience to its highest potential. The PA supports the St. John's community by mentoring new families, hosting fun, all-family events like the annual Carnival, and assisting teachers and staff.
Since its inception, the PA has contributed more than $2.5 million to the school. Various initiatives like Uniform Resale, Book Fair, Raffle, Carnival, Box Tops collections, grocery cards memberships and Crusader Shop sales will continue to help build the school's endowment, provide scholarships, further develop our professional staff and create more student enrichment opportunities.
