Parent Auxiliary Group

What is the purpose of the Parents' Auxiliary Group?

The purpose is to assist the Principal and School Council in meeting the needs of the school community. We meet these needs on three levels: financial, social and educational.

How can parents get involved at St. Joseph's School?

Parents are an integral part of the parish and school community and are encouraged to take part in the activities of the school. Parents provide the leadership needed for special activities, fund-raisers, socials and other community building events. St. Joseph's School has an active Parents' Auxiliary Group (PAG) which functions under the direction of the School Council. A parent liaison representative facilitates communication between the two organizations. Meetings are held once a month.

Who can belong to the Parents' Auxiliary Group?

Anyone who is a parent or guardian of a student at the school can belong to the Parents' Advisory Council. The PAG is parent/guardian organized and managed. Members are elected annually for a two year term.

What does the Parents' Auxiliary Group do?

We organize fund-raisers such as the Hot Lunch Program as well as Bingos and Casinos to provide financial assistance for school programs, equipment and recreational activities. We stage social events such as the Halloween Bash, the Family Dance, the Fun Fair and the Casino Night & Silent Auction. We provide both access to educational materials in the Parent Resource Center and opportunities to enjoy guest speakers before the PAG meetings.
