Volunteer Information


Our school is served greatly by our many talented parent volunteers.  Volunteers help set up and run various events, supervise field trips, assist in open houses, decorate the school at Christmas, and serve wherever needed.

Volunteers that work with students need to meet certain requirements as set forth by the Archdiocese of Chicago.  Please follow the links below for a checklist of the requirements, as well as a volunteer packet.  Volunteer Packets may also be obtained at the School Office.

Please note:  There is a NEW requirement this year of Mandated Reporter Training.  Volunteers must complete this online training before volunteering in the school.
