Your Time is Valued!
Saint Joseph Catholic School heavily relies on the use of volunteers for the success of our school.
Please refer to the detailed information provided by the PTO at Open House for information regarding volunteer opportunities. In addition to assisting in the classroom, cafeteria or school office, the PTO also sponsors fundraising and educational programs throughout the year.
Use of Volunteers
This school welcomes qualified volunteers. The principal makes the final determination as to whether a particular volunteer's services can be utilized. Volunteers are always needed in the school to assist the teacher in various academic programs such as oral reading, library assistance, and art projects.
Volunteers from the community are especially needed to present programs and instruction to the students. Teachers, parents, and administrators will seek the persons from the community and invite them to participate in teaching the children through presentations.
VIRTUS Training – In an effort to keep all our children safe at Saint Joseph Catholic School, all volunteers who work with children in an unsupervised position are required to attend a VIRTUS workshop and have background checks conducted.
Checking In: All parents, volunteers, and visitors must check in at the office and get a visitors pass before going anywhere in the building. For safety purposes, all doors with the exception of one main entrance door will be locked from the outside during the normal school day. All volunteers, parents and visitors are asked to use the main front entrance by the offices.
