Parents are the vital component between home and school. The strong parental connection at St. Joseph School Wilmette demonstrates to children that we are all working toward the same goal in providing the best environment possible for their learning and growth. Parents can reinforce lessons learned in the school, not only in academic subjects but also character, values and behavior.
St. Joseph School strives to help parents understand how to guide their students, and participate appropriately in the educational experience of their children. All parents are given opportunities to visit, volunteer or assist in the classroom and school.
Parents are kept informed of their child’s progress through in-person conferences and regular online communications, which we are presently expanding to provide even more online tools for parents. Our principal and staff members are available promptly and immediately when parents have questions.
