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 2021 Parent & Student Handbook or log into SchoolSpeak, our parent, teacher and student portal.

“The decision to send our children to St. John’s began as a tradition passed down from our parents but evolved into a way of life we felt could not be fulfilled through other academic avenues. Having been members of the St. John’s school family for the past 12 years, we can attest to the dedication of the faculty, administration, and staff in offering the very best combination of academic and religious education for our children. In addition, the school’s family atmosphere offers abundant opportunities for caring collaboration with other families who share our same values and faith. At St. John’s, Catholic values are woven into ALL aspects of school life, each and every day, continuously strengthening both the moral and spiritual growth of our children. For these, and so many other reasons, our family joins the many others in treasuring the St. John’s school community.” — Current SJ23 Family

The SJ23 Home and School Association is a parent-run group 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 Bowling, 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), flower sale, Soles for Catholic Education, and 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! The Home and School Association meets on the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM. All parents are invited to attend.

To become a volunteer or to learn more about the Home and School Association, please call 262.284.2682 or visit sj23.ivolunteer.com.
