Volunteering

They say that volunteers are the heart of any organization, and St. Andrew's School is no exception.  It is through our fundraisers and many family events that we can sponsor activities such as Pizza Night, Craft Night, and Dessert with Someone Special.  The children and parents thoroughly enjoy these events each year.  We have many events and festivities that we need help with during the year.  Below is a description of some of the events to which we hope you will consider lending your hearts and hands.

Class Parents

Each class, depending on the size, has 2 or 3 class parents.  This is done on a volunteer basis and there is ample opportunity for everyone to volunteer if they would like. Responsibilities include organizing a back-to-school class coffee, orchestrating sign-up for class parties, activating the snow chain and helping with Teacher Appreciation Week.
