The St. Joseph School Committee consists of elected school family parent representatives and representatives of the PTG, Athletic Committee and the St. Joseph Parish. The purpose of the School Committee is to advise, inform and consult with the Principal of St. Joseph in order to meet the goals and objectives of the Parish and school. The School Committee, adhering to the St. Joseph philosophy of being guided by faith, strengthened by prayer and committed to academic excellence, will promote a Catholic educational community.
The duties of the School Committee include, but are not limited to, making recommendations regarding the school budget, planning for both short term and long term goals, addressing parent concerns, assisting with the development, marketing and public relations of the school and recommending policies to the Principal. It is not the purpose of the School Committee to implement or establish any policies made by the Principal and/or the Parish.
The School Committee holds a monthly meeting at 7pm on the second Tuesday of every month. Please contact your class representative should you have any questions and/or concerns. The representatives for the 2014-15 School Committee are listed below. If you have questions, call the school office.

The PTG is an organization comprised of the parents, the faculty and the principal of St. Joseph School. Its purpose is to advance the welfare of the students, to promote an interest in educational affairs, and to provide ongoing communications between the school and the home.
One of the primary functions of the PTG is to raise funds to provide "extras" for the basic educational program at the school. Funds are raised through the sponsorship of the annual Craft Fair held the weekend before Thanksgiving each year.
PTG meetings are open to all parents and faculty. The meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month either at 9:00am or 7:00pm. Please check the school calendar for this month's meeting date.
The St. Joseph School Technology Committee is a group of parents, faculty, and staff members dedicated to incorporating technology into the school environment so that lifelong learning is fostered and instruction is enriched. Technology Committee meetings are held as needed.
