Parent Partnership Organization (PPO)
Parents Connecting, Caring and Sharing in Christ
Through St. John’s School and Early Childhood Center
What is PPO?
PPO is the Parent Partnership Organization. We bring the parents of St. John’s students together to provide active support for our children’s growth as they are Strengthened by the King. We also focus on activities that help us unite as parents to support each other and our kids.
What does PPO do?
The PPO creates, funds and executes programs that increase school spirit and provide opportunities for our children to have new experiences that aid their growth as Followers of the King. Some of these programs include:
• Student Activities
o Funding for all St. John’s sports programs (volleyball, soccer, basketball, cross country, track, cheerleading and softball)
o Funding for busses on class field trips and service experiences at Cedar Community
o Funding for each teacher to purchase classroom and educational enhancements
• School Spirit and Fellowship Activities
o Spirit Wear – St. John’s spirit clothing selections
o Back-to-school ice cream social
o Refreshments during school programs and activities (concerts, tournaments, etc.)
• Teacher Appreciation Activities
o Teacher appreciation breakfast during NLSW
o Teacher appreciation luncheon during Teacher Appreciation Week
Who is PPO?
Every parent at St. John’s School and Early Childhood Center makes up the PPO. We need everyone’s help and support! Please plan to participate in the programs and activities the PPO provides, and volunteer as often as you can. Sign-up sheets to serve on planning committees for many PPO activities will be available each several events during the school year.
The PPO has a Leadership Team of enthusiastic parents that help develop and manage the PPO programs. We’re always looking for more members of the Leadership Team. If you’d like to join us, please contact Dawn, Reidel, Terriann Gundrum or Amanda Heisdorf. The more active parents we have, the more we can do!
Working Together, We Will Be Strengthened by the King!
