SJCS Parent / Teacher / School Support Organization
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:
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.
- 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
To participate in school and parish social activities. (If their attendance is not possible, the parents must support these activities in other ways)
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 ($15.00/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.
