Interested in volunteering?

The enthusiasm and dedication of parent and parish volunteers contributes to the school’s warm atmosphere and is an important part of its success. Volunteers help the school in many ways: on the playground at recess, in the lunchroom, in the art and music programs, in the library, the office, assisting classroom teachers, serving on the PTO or helping with fund raising projects, maintaining the building and grounds, coaching sports teams, leading clubs and other activities.

While volunteer/service is required of all families, we find that most parents enthusiastically participate, often volunteering far more than any requirement. A list of volunteer positions is published at the beginning of the school year, and parents use the SignUp Genius website to indicate how they would like to donate their time and talents.

Volunteering at your child’s school has many benefits.  Children love to see Mom or Dad, Grandma or Grandpa, or anyone else who is close to them, participating in their school day.  Children perform better in school when their loved ones are involved and present!  To  share your talents, please see the volunteer job listing, which will be coming soon, in August 2016.

Please remember that all volunteers must obtain compliance according to Diocesan regulations, for the safety and security of our children. See the information about Child Protections Forms below.

The Sign Ups page has a listing of volunteer opportunities and links for you you to sign up.  Or call the school office at 703-698-7171.

Child Protection Forms for Volunteers

All volunteers who have contact with children must complete and submit a packet of child protection forms and attend a VIRTUS seminar.  Contact Mrs. Konczal in the school office to receive the forms. She will answer any questions you may have and help you to complete the process expeditiously.
