SJCS Parent / Teacher / School Support Organization

Membership

All parents of SJCS students must be actively involved in the education of their children through membership and active participation in the SJCS Parent/Teacher/School Support (Volunteer) Organization.

Nature and Function

Like all other parish organizations, SJCS Parent/Teacher/School Support Organization is governed by Archdiocesan policy:

All recommendations and actions of the School Support Organization are subject to the established regulations and policies of the Department of Education pursuant to directions of the Ordinary of the Archdiocese and Canon Law. In view of the non-delegable responsibilities imposed upon the Pastor and the Ordinary of the Archdiocese by Canon Law, the School Support Organization will be solely consultative or advisory in nature. (Administrative Handbook, Archdiocese of L.A.)

St. John Chrysostom School Teacher Parent Involvement

Parents, at the time of registration and re-registration, are asked to sign an agreement stating that they are willing to support the school and achieve its goals: Spiritual, Social and Financial.

Spiritual

  • To attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days, and see to it that their children attend Mass if Catholic
  • To attend all required parent meetings in preparation for reception of the Sacraments

Social

To participate in school and parish social activities. (If their attendance is not possible, the parents must support these activities in other ways)

Financial

To devote a minimum of 40 hours of voluntary service to the school or pay the $400 fee. If the 40 hours have not been completed, the difference ($10.00/hr) must be paid to the school before the end of each school year. This obligation is a condition for readmission to the school for the following year. Other activities take place throughout the school year in which parents are expected to participate.

Our Parent Teacher Association

PTA Purpose

  • Assist the school administration and teachers in coordinating the spiritual and educational resources of the home and school.
  • Provide parents with opportunities for social, spiritual and educational enrichment.
  • Provide school support.

Parent Meetings are held each year for the purpose of parent information and direct communication between school and home. These meetings are planned to help you as parents better understand and help your children. The dates are in the school calendar and reminders will be sent home prior to the meetings. All parents are required to attend.

SJCS Marketing Team

Members meet for regular local and Archdiocesan meetings to develop and execute marketing strategies that support and enhance awareness of the school within the comminity.
