The Parent Teacher Organization is an integral part of St. John Paul II Catholic High School. Every family is a part of this organization once you enroll your children.

The PTO objectives are:


~ To promote open communication and cooperation between parents, faculty, and administration.

~ To direct and coordinate parental support to St. John Paul II Catholic High School through assistance in activities, community events, and fundraisers.

~ To develop an understanding of quality education and the enhancement of our children’s educational environment.


There will be three general PTO meetings during the school year on informative topics.  The schedule is posted on the school calendar.

The organization and school depends on the help of every family.  There will be opportunities for volunteering throughout the school year.  Please help out where your talents are best utilized. This parent volunteer initiative is called our Triple T Program, and each family must complete 25 service hours to the school during the course of the school year.

If you have any questions, you may contact the PTO board at
