The St. Joseph Catholic School Parent-Teacher-Student Organization (PTSO) acts as a unifying force to support and nurture all facets of our school community. Working with the Pastor, Principal, and School Council, PTSO plans activities and events that build school spirit, promote awareness of important educational issues, showcase the talents of our students and teachers, and raise funding to continue our school's mission of providing quality Catholic education.
Some recent PTSO projects include Halloween celebration, TURKEYFEST, St. Joseph Celebration, and the annual Walkathon.
The PTSO has quarterly meetings.
