The St. John Lutheran Parent Connection (SJPC) is a volunteer organization made up of parents who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children. We are here to help students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs, to promote open communication between administration, teachers, and parents/guardians and to encourage St. John school spirit and pride. The SJPC uses its resources, both manpower and monetary, to support the efforts of the staff and to provide learning and enrichment opportunities for our children.

Some specific functions of our Parent Connection are:

 

* Liaison with Administration and the Board of Christian Education

 

* Fellowship with other parents

 

* Volunteer opportunities within the school such as:

 

* Classroom Coordinators
