PTO & SAC
PTO - Parent Teacher Organization
The PTO represents all parents and teachers with its main objective to promote the welfare of the school and to be supportive to the pastor, school advisory council and principal in school activities and service.
Each family is asked to sign up for fundraisers that the PTO will be sponsoring throughout the school year. These activities provide an opportunity for getting to know our school community as well as bringing in the needed funds to keep our school operating. Parental involvement is an important element in the development of the SJA community.
Parents can sign up during the first month of school to be on the PTO committee for the year. The committee is a collaborative team with no one person in charge. The duties are divided and shared as needed each year.
SAC - School Advisory Council
The focus of the SAC is to provide policy direction for selective program needs of the school, especially in planning, finances and development and to promote the implementation of those policies and to ensure that all policies are in accordance with the policies established by the Archdiocese of Portland.
As an advisory council to the pastor and principal, the SAC assists both parties in achieving the school philosophy and providing support and consultative guidance. Long term planning and development is done through the council.
All school families are welcome to attend all open meetings. Opportunity will be given for parents to address SAC. When the Board moves into Executive Session, the meeting is closed to guests.
