Home and School Association

Home and School exists to promote cooperation and communication between parents, teachers and administration. Home & School sponsors many activities that are intended to enhance the spiritual, social and academic experiences of the Saint John Vianney school community. Home & School works closely with the Principal to achieve its goals.

Home and School is also the primary fundraising body for the school. There are three major fundraising programs sponsored by Home & School. In addition to funding the various curriculum enriching programs, the funds raised by Home and School have also been used to finance numerous projects and equipment throughout the school.
