The purpose of the SJAS Faith, Family, & Fun Association is to enhance the connection between families and the school. All parents with children enrolled in St. John’s Area School and all staff and teachers are part of the SJAS Faith, Family, & Fun Association.

The goals (or objectives) are to:

  • Assist with communication between school and parents
