Volunteer Opportunities 2024-2025

We have a number of fantastic events already planned for the 2024-2025 school year! Please remember to check school communications often for updated opportunities and information. Also, please don’t hesitate to contact the school office directly if you are in need of more information or you want to volunteer!

Our events are not only important for raising funds for our school, but also excellent ways to build connections with other families in our community. None of this would not be possible without the dedication and support of our amazing volunteers. We cannot thank you enough for donating your time and talents in support of our school and students!

Please Note: Volunteers must successfully complete the required clearances before volunteering for any activity or event that involves children.

We ask that all school families consider completing a minimum of 25 volunteer hours per year plus 4 cafeteria shifts if possible. Opportunities currently include:

Hospitality Committee

This is a committee which will be called on several times over the course of the year to provide delicious treats for school events and activities.

Book Fair

Volunteers are needed for set-up the week before the event and to work shifts when the Book Fair is open to students and families.

Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat is a fun outdoor family event held in the SSPJ parking lot. During the event, students and families can dress up in their Halloween costumes and can safely enjoy a night of Trick or Treating on our campus. Students will visit various decorated and themed cars. They will also participate in fun activities and enjoy food, drinks and music. Volunteer responsibilities at this event include set up prior, parking lot entrance monitoring and clean up after the event.

Tricky Tray

Our annual Tricky Tray features well over 100 fantastic prize baskets and so much more.

Faith and Service Dinner

The Faith and Service Dinner is designed to honor those who have given back to the parish and school community. Since 2014, our annual event has celebrated an alumnus or group, and a member of the parish who have worked tirelessly, oftentimes behind the scenes, to better our school and parish environments. This event is a way to celebrate and honor those who have made a difference, while also serving as a major fundraiser with funds going directly towards continuous academic and technology programs. More information will be coming soon!

Volunteer responsibilities may include: checking in runners, guiding runners on the course, handing out water, assisting with runner timing, and assembling runner swag bags.
