Panther Parent Association

St. James Cathedral School is proud to have such an involved and supportive Panther Parent Association (PPA). Many achievements coordinated by our Panther Parent Association have offset logistical and financial responsibilities that would otherwise be carried out by our school. The PPA’s continued stewardship and contributions to St. James Cathedral School have a direct, positive impact on our students, school, parents, and community.

PPA Mission Statement-

The mission of the St James Cathedral School Panther Parent Association is to foster opportunities for our school community to grow in our relationship with Christ and each other through acts of service and volunteerism.

The purpose of this association shall be to promote the welfare of our children in the home, school, church, and community by supporting the parish priest, school administration, teachers, staff, and our school families. This will be accomplished through the coordination of activities that encourage active parent involvement, foster fellowship, and a strong sense of community. 

Our Panther Promise-

As defined in the Parent-Student Handbook, our Panther Promise is a philosophy that builds upon our parent and community involvement initiatives, whereby each SJCS family contributes their God-given gifts and talents to enrich our community. Every St. James family is asked to commit to a minimum of 15 hours of volunteer work to fulfill their Panther Promise yearly.
