Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers play a very important role at St. John Catholic Elementary School. Volunteers may assist in classrooms or in the Learning Commons, act as chaperones on class trips and excursions, assist with preparing hot lunches, or become involved with activities planned by the Catholic School Council, which is also made up volunteers. Volunteers also assist children with reading, help out at our annual Christmas Luncheon, and lend a hand for special projects like our gingerbread house-making activity this past year.

Criminal Records Check/Vulnerable Sector Check

All volunteers must submit a Criminal Records Check and a Vulnerable Sector Check as required by the School Board.

The Criminal Records Check and a Vulnerable Sector Check remains valid if a volunteer completes a declaration form each year. If the declaration form is not completed, then a new Criminal Records Check and a Vulnerable Sector Check must be initiated.

All those wishing to volunteer must also complete a one-time online training module from the board office. Please require wit the school secretary for more information.

For additional information on volunteering, you can read our Board's Policy Site and look for Policy 707. If you are interested in volunteering your time at St. John School, please contact the school office at 705-745-4113
