Get Involved


We value and appreciate all our adult volunteers! Volunteer participation is part of our Parent Participation Expectations and is a great way to show your kids that you take an interest in their education. Volunteering sends our students a positive message about the importance of participating in the community, and is an invaluable resource and support base for our school.

All adult volunteers must complete our volunteer required training before participating in volunteer activities at our school.

Ways to Volunteer

These are some of the ways you can get involved at St. Mary’s School:

In the classroom. Contact your child’s teacher to find out how you might help in class. Opportunities may include listening to readers, helping with reading or math, or setting up arts and crafts projects.

Weekly and monthly events. Our student council sponsors a variety of scheduled student activities to raise funds or boost school spirit. Review our monthly list of student council activities for events that interest you, then contact your child’s teacher to find out how you might help.

Annual fundraising events. St. Mary’s School has a wonderful history organizing a variety of community and school fundraising events. These events include:

Christmas Tea and Champagne Brunch
Halloween Carnival
Harvest Run
Mardi Gras

Sign-up sheets for these events are available during Back to School Night held at the beginning of the school year. You may also volunteer for an event by contacting the school office.

All adult volunteers must complete our Volunteer Required Training to participate in volunteer activities at our school.

If you have fulfilled volunteered hours for a school event, please complete the Parent Participation Tracker.


All parent volunteers are representatives of our parish and school, and strive to support our school staff and policies. Our volunteers understand that working with students may involve the sharing of confidential information, and such information should only be discussed with other staff or the school principal.
