SJS Parent Organizations and Volunteering

Parent Organizations & Volunteering

PTO (Parent and Teacher Organization) – The PTO is a group of parents committed to enhancing St. John’s School. Through our fund-raising efforts we help purchase some of the “extras” for our school, provide fellowship and networking for St. John families, and appreciation for the staff. The group has monthly, evening meetings during the school year.

​Senior Saints Grandparents Group – Our Senior Saints are grandparents and senior friends of St. John School. This group meets monthly during the school day for fellowship, to work on projects and to help in the classrooms. Members of this group also volunteer their time to help with school events and fundraisers. For more information, please contact Chris Olds at
