The PTU’s mission is to provide service, support, and appreciation to our faith-filled school community, teachers, students, and parents; to strengthen relationships between school families, students, and teachers through social events; and to enhance and improve our children's education through fundraising efforts.
To meet parents, teachers, staff and administration, make friends and connections and build a better school together.
YOU are the PTU! The Sts. Joseph and John Parent Teacher Union is comprised of teachers and parents of students of all grades. There is no fee to join. All teachers and families enrolled at SJJ are automatically a part of the PTU. We work together to provide service to our faith-filled community while strengthening relationships between school families, students, and teachers through social and fundraising events.
Your involvement in the PTU will not only strengthen your family's relationship with the school it will also help to improve our children's educational experience by enhancing it with activities sponsored by the PTU. By holding social functions for both kids and parents, we strive to emphasize the fun while building and strengthening relations within families and between families.
Our service "projects" are grouped into 3 categories: Students, Parents, and Teacher/School.
The PTU also fundraises through the year with the goal of improving our children's experience in whatever way possible. In addition to supporting our social functions, our funds go toward major school improvements (iPads, smart boards, stage extenders, furniture in the art classroom, laptops, and basketball hoops) and minor purchases (art supplies, and playground balls).
We invite you to become involved with your children's school, to meet new friends and to be a part of your child's education community by attending a PTU meeting.
Being active in the PTU is a great way to meet people, make friends, and make connections. You can make friends by coming to the meetings, attending events, or volunteering. The PTU helps school families make friends and connections by hosting family and social events, like the Ice Cream Social. Make friends through the PTU!
The PTU enables you to have more contact with and to get to know the Administration, Staff, and Teachers. The PTU also provides a direct way to support and appreciate the teachers. Not only does the PTU provide funding for teachers for learning programs, classroom technology, school supplies, and teacher continuing education, the PTU hosts a number of teacher support and appreciation events during the year. Get involved in the PTU and add your voice to teacher support and appreciation!
PTU is a great information resource. Do you have questions about the school, when to sign up for events, etc.? The PTU keeps you up-to-date with what's going on at Sts. Joseph and John School! The PTU also provides you access to great resources on a variety of topics that parents are concerned about. The PTU hosts educational speakers for parents on topics like bullying and childhood obesity. Be better informed. Get involved in the PTU!
Schools with a strong PTU have a better reputation in the community and have a positive attitude, school spirit, and school pride. The PTU works to encourage these things throughout the year by hosting a variety of school events and programs like Student Appreciation Day. Encourage school spirit and pride through the PTU!
