Positive Parent Involvement
St. Christopher School sees parents as important partners in the education and development of children. The school and its parents share a common mission – to foster each child’s academic success, emotional well-being, and spiritual growth. Working together, the school and its parents can create an exceptional educational, social and moral experience for every child. St. Chris offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, including before school activities, during school events and programs, and after school and at-home options. Please take a moment to read the descriptions below!
How to Get Started: To make signing up for volunteering easy for our parents and coordinators, we have created online volunteer registration sheets for all of our programs through Sign-Up Genius. This system is GREAT! You can sign up with just a few clicks of the mouse, receive automatic email reminders about your volunteer activities, see who else is volunteering for a program, switch volunteer times with another volunteer, and more!
At the end of each volunteer opportunity description below, you will find a link to that volunteer registration form on Sign-up Genius. You must register your name and email in order to volunteer – this enables the email reminders and gives our volunteer coordinators an easy way to contact you.
For additional questions, please call Director of Advancement Marta Nissen at 882--7442, ext. 116.
