Home & School Association

Connect with us on


Home and School (HandS) is made up of a group of dedicated, hard-working, positive
St. Joseph Catholic School parents.  The committee is open for all parents and we welcome everyone’s participation. There are many ways to be involved in HandS and we are always seeking volunteers.   Our organization is comprised of an executive leadership team and several subcommittees.  Our primary objective is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources, and services that will enrich and maximize the education and Catholic faith of every child and to benefit the school. With the financial support and volunteer hours provided by HandS, many events and programs are made possible.  Home and School does so much to enrich the students and faculty at St. Joseph Catholic School, and that is due to the support of our entire school community.  We want you to be an active part of that.

Just Give 5!

HandS has a policy of encouraging each family to give 5 hours of their time.  We are so grateful to those of you who answer this call, and many of you give well above the 5 hours each and every year.  We simply could not accomplish our goals without your hard work.  We want to do more to encourage and recognize your contributions.

New this year…submit after-school volunteer hours online!   We understand that not all volunteer opportunities occur when you are signed in at the school office.  Hard work often takes place off campus, or at times when the office is closed.  Examples of this might include cutting Box Tops, making goodies for a Teacher Appreciation event, working concessions for basketball, or picking up donations for the auction, just to name a few.  In addition, we recognize that many of you donate items and resources other than time.  We want to honor all of your important contributions to Home and School by tracking those hours and donations, and we want to make it easy for you.  Please track all donations and volunteer work that you complete when you are not signed into the school office by completing our online Google form.  Thank you so much for your hard work on behalf of our school and our students.  Please contact us if you have any questions.  Click the link below to submit your hours and log your contributions.
