Volunteering at SJA

     We are very excited to offer volunteer opportunities at SJA once again. Families must have their vaccination card, background checks, any required training for volunteers up to date prior to volunteering in the school.


     The opportunities for volunteering at St. John the Apostle Catholic School are vast and varied. Volunteer hours strengthen the SJA community, enable us to keep operating costs low and fundraisers successful.


     Volunteering is a way for parents to become a part of their student’s school life and to get to know the teachers, staff and other parents. We hope you’ll choose activities and events that are interesting to you, fit within your schedule, and reflect the current priorities and needs of St. John the Apostle Catholic School.

 

Each family is encouraged to contribute the following volunteer hours:

- PreK families: 15 hours for the school year
- K-8th families: 35 hours for the school year
- Single parent families: ½ the recommended hours

Tracking your Volunteer Hours

There are two ways you can record your volunteer hours:

1. If volunteering at the school during school hours, your hours will be automatically recorded when you sign-in to the visitor program in the school office.

2. Other hours need to be recorded monthly on the Volunteer Hour Recording forms that are provided thru the Weekly Eagle (school newsletter) emails or can be downloaded from the link on the side of this page.

 

Volunteering is also a way for parents to become a part of their student’s school life and to get to know the teachers, staff, and other parents.  We hope you’ll choose activities and events that are interesting to you, fit within your schedule, and reflect the current priorities and needs of St. John the Apostle School.
