The IJP PTO is in need of volunteers interested in joining the Board. The PTO’s role is to offer programs and funds that will enrich and supplement the educational programs in place at IJP. We are able to do this by fundraising throughout the year. By joining the Board you have a voice in the activities and programs we offer.  You are able to connect with other parents throughout the IJP Community. And, you learn the difference we make in the students and teachers school experience each school year.

Catholic Schools Week will begin January 28th with the kick off of the Scholastic Book Fair after Masses. We will be looking for Volunteers to help throughout the week. We will also have a Fun Lunch on Friday February 2nd, information will be sent home on Monday.  

Please contact Shannon Mayronne at or (708) 768-6756 for more information.
