Volunteering at our School

We are most appreciative of all the assistance, time, and talent we receive from our many parent
volunteers. In-school services provided by our volunteers include conducting holiday parties, field trips, library
aides, playground helpers, cafeteria, and office aides. While on playground duty, volunteers will space
themselves strategically so that all children and areas of play are visible and properly supervised.
If you have a few extra hours, please consider helping your child and our school. Contact your child’s
teacher or ask at the library or office for ways to provide your time and talents to benefit our school.

Volunteers in any of our school programs are required to have a PA State Police check, DPW child
abuse check papers, FBI Fingerprint, certification of the completion of Mandated Reporting and the
Youth Protection Video from the Diocesan website, and Diocesan YPP certification on file with the
Diocese of Harrisburg and have a signed Computer End User Policy on file in the office before they can work in or around children.                            This includes anyone who accompanies the students on trips. All volunteers will be required to sign a volunteer agreement form before becoming involved in activities with the students. All volunteers must wear their Diocesan Youth Protection Program Volunteer badge.
