The opportunities for volunteering at St. John School are vast and varied. Your enthusiastic volunteerism enables us to keep operating costs low and fundraisers successful. While we do not require a minimum number of volunteer hours, we do ask parents to strive towards the yearly goal of 40 hours per two-parent family and 20 hours per one-parent family.
Volunteering is also a way for parents to become a part of their student’s school life and get to know the teachers, staff, and other parents. We hope you’ll choose activities and events that are interesting to you, fit within your schedule, and reflect the current priorities and needs of St. John School.
Our major push for scheduling volunteers is in September, at the beginning of the school year. We welcome grandparents, extended family, parishioners, neighbors and special friends of St. John to volunteer as well. Background checks and yearly Archdiocese-sponsored Safe Environment Program training, or online updating, are mandatory. Sheila Marty at the Parish office is happy to answer your questions about the Safe Environment Program training and background checks. Please contact her at 206-782-2810 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
