Dear Parents,

On behalf of PAWS, we would like to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. PAWS is an organization consisting of parents who support school administration and staff by assisting in efforts to solve school needs through volunteering and planning school-related events. A familiar phrase states, “It takes a village to raise a child”. The same can be said about running a school. Our goal is to attract a large group of parent volunteers to join PAWS and help make the school year a success.

You may have already seen PAWS at work this year if you attended the New Family BBQ or Back to School Night. This group of volunteers works under the direction of Donna Barron, VP of Academy Advancement and Alumni Affairs. Together we work with school personnel to foster our school community by hosting receptions for the College Fair, Honor Society Induction Ceremony, Grandparents Day as well as many fun activities for the students and staff during Catholic School’s Week (just to name a few). PAWS hosts the annual ‘Tis the Season Market Days event as a means to bring in revenue and give the local community an opportunity to visit our beautiful campus. It has been an enormous success! PAWS designates a portion of this revenue to make a difference on campus. Some of the projects that have been funded include updating the teacher’s lounge and purchasing 5 hydration stations for the whole school community to enjoy. 

Now that you know who we are and what we do, we would like to invite YOU to become a member of PAWS. This invitation is extended to all parents who are interested in helping their child’s school succeed. Your obligation will be to be as active as your time permits. There are monthly general assembly meetings that take place on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 6:00 pm in the Upper Division Library.

Be a part of the “village” that supports Saint Joseph Academy!
Looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting.

Liz Harris

2018-2019 PAWS President
