PARENTS

St. John XXIII Catholic School (SJ23) is blessed with a giving and involved parent community. Our parents are the heart and soul of our school culture and the engine driving our high academic and spiritual standards, family enrichment events, co-curricular clubs, and overall vision of our school.

SJ23 parents show their children they are interested in their day-to-day school life and value our larger school community by helping with homework, volunteering in the classroom, sharing a hobby or skill, coaching a sport, attending school events, and by volunteering their time to make our school community better.

To learn more, read our Parent and Student Handbook or log into SchoolSpeak, our parent, teacher and student portal.

Before and after school child care is available to all registered SJ23 preschool through 6th grade students. Learn more about our Child Care Program.

At SJ23, we have an involved, parent-run Home and School Association that coordinates the majority of our family and student enrichment programs, teacher appreciation events, parent events, school clubs, and fundraising. This group is passionate about our school, and the entire school community benefits greatly.

We are able to offer family events like the Fall Spooktacular, Mother/Son Bowling, Father/Daughter Dance, and Breakfast for Baby Jesus because of our dedicated parent base.

SJ23 parents, in conjunction with parish and alumni volunteers, also organize and run all of our school fundraising events that are so vital to a thriving school environment. Many, many parents are needed to successfully run events such as The Key Event (our annual dinner and auction), fish fries, flower sale, Soles for Catholic Education—and our newest fundraiser, the Student Artwork Raffle Calendar.

Funds raised from these programs help offset operating expenses, keep tuition rates manageable, and support our wonderful student, faculty, and family programs. Although these events are called “fundraisers,” they are so much more. They are fun events that build family, community, and friendships.

Consider volunteering and sharing your talents and make some great friends along the way. Every family is asked to volunteer throughout the school year and support our fundraising programs. Volunteerism is the heart of our vibrant and enthusiastic family community. We appreciate the time and efforts of our parent, parish, and alumni volunteers!
