VPO COMMITTEES

The VPO has established committees to help support the efforts of enhancing the SJCP community. The committees are open to all parents/guardians/grandparents as we are soliciting volunteers to help in any capacity. Committee members are able to participate in all or just a part of the planning and organizing, volunteering at events, or donating whether it be monetarily or providing items needed.
