Parents at St. Joseph are involved with their child’s education in many ways including – an active parent club, family-oriented activties, fundraising for student / teacher materials, and volunteer school services.

Fundraising FAQ

Do I have to participate in all of the fundraising events?

Not necessarily.

What is the benefit of participating in the fundraising events?

First, you are helping the parents and teachers reach the required goal set in the school budget. Second, your child is also participating in the event too. For some events, the classes with the highest totals are treated to something “extra” for their efforts. These “extra’s” could be: free dress, pizza party, extra recess, ice cream, etc.

Does my child need to go door-to-door to help sell magazines?

This is not suggested unless your child is 100% supervised by you at all times.

Can I suggest other fundraising events to the school?

Absolutely, we are open to new suggestions. Contact the PTG president to ask for time on the agenda at the monthly meeting. We are always looking for fresh ideas.

What is the Annual Auction Event all about?

The auction event is an evening of fun and excitement. The auction committee has arranged for donated items to be given to the school to sell. The profit on the item goes to the school towards the fundraising goals. At this event, you bid on items to purchase at great prices against your community members. It is a ton of fun and you should plan on getting your friends and family to join you for this special event.
