Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I attend if I have children with me?
A: Yes!   Children of all ages are welcome! Many of the FA Executive Board Members and Committee Members will also have their children there with them.

Q: What if I cannot attend?
A: If you are unable to attend, please contact your Class Parent so he/she can let you know what activities and field trips she needs volunteers for.  In addition, to accommodate our working parents therewill be a FA table at Back to School Night where you can pay your FA dues and signup for FA Events.   If you have any questions, please contact vice-president@sjspta.com

Q: Will I be uncomfortable if I don’t know anyone else who is going?
A: No.  This is your opportunity to meet the other parents in your class, as well as parents from other grades.  You will also get a chance to meet your Class Parent.  If there is anything we can do to make you feel more comfortable, please let us know!

Q: What are the PTA dues?
A: The FA dues are $50 for one child and $20 for each additional child.  Please click HERE for a breakdown of how the dues are used. 

Q: Do I have to pay the FA dues?
A: If you do not pay your dues, you will not receive a school directory.  More importantly, not paying your dues will make it difficult for your Class Parent to do his/her job since the class will not have enough money for the class parties, gifts and FA student events throughout the year.  Since your child will still participate in these events you will be asking the other parents in your class to subsidize the cost of your child.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding FA dues, please contact  vice-president@sjspta.com

Q: What form of payments do you accept for FA dues and the SJS retail purchases?
A: Checks and cash are preferred, but we also accept Visa or Mastercard.

Q: What SJS retail items are available for purchase?
A: We offer staple items such as belts, hair bows, coupons and coupon wallets.  We are always working on finding new items, so please stop by our table to see what's new!

Q: Will there be coffee served?
A: Yes, coffee and a continental breakfast will be served.
