About > Volunteer Opportunity
Our parents and grandparents are a vital part of John Paul II. It is the time and talents that they share with our students and teachers that make the educational experience enriching and successful. We offer numerous opportunities to get involved with the school, take part in your child’s education, and just have fun. Listed below are just a few of the opportunities. We encourage you to get involved!
All volunteers working with children must follow the procedures outlined by the Archdiocese. Archdiocesan Policy requires all volunteers (including, but not limited to, room parents, chaperones, etc.) to complete the SafeParish – Child Awareness Session and register for a background check through Selection.com (found under the Toolbar in the SafeParish account). Through Selection.com, a background check will be conducted every six months.
Volunteer to help teachers with special projects, organizing weekly folders, working with the primary students in reading, writing and math. Helping with classroom parties and chaperoning field trips.
Volunteer to assist the librarian in the cataloging and circulation of books, maintaining the library, and assisting students during the library period.
There are many volunteers needed to help with the activities sponsored by the PTO. Parents volunteer to help with the fall family activity, flower sale, Walk-A-Thon, Catholic Schools Week, recess, and other fun-filled activities throughout the year.
Fun & Field Day
Many volunteers are needed to help set up, make lunch, monitor students as they travel from game to game and just have fun! Mr. Carter, our PE teacher, will meet with all volunteers to discuss the events of the day.
Numerous other opportunities to help exists. If you have a special interest, please speak up and volunteer!
