How to get involved

Parent Service Program

Back to School CelebrationEach family is required to actively support St. Ferdinand School by fulfilling ten (10) hours in the Service Program during the academic year. A $250.00 fee will be added to your April tuition if the requirement is not met.

Opportunities to volunteer are publicized throughout the year in the weekly Thursday newsletters, as well as school emails.

There are many volunteer opportunities: ushers, lecturers, Eucharistic ministers, lunch parents, library helpers, special events coordinators, fundraising organizers, chaperones, recess supervisors, Lenten Fish Fry helpers, School Board members, Sports Council members, coaches, and Family & School Association members.

Please contact the School Office for more information about the various ways to get involved at St. Ferdinand School.

Our Volunteers are obliged to fulfill certain requirements enforced by the Archdiocese of Chicago. All volunteers that work with our children during the school day need to have completed Virtus training.  Please click the link below to see a full list of requirements for volunteering in the Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic Schools:
