Dear St. John School Parents,
My name is Melissa Frye and I am once again the Volunteer Coordinator for St. John School this year. My job is to fill the schools' volunteer opportunities and track how many hours each parent volunteers. Every family is required to volunteer for at least 10 hours a year or you can make a lofty donation to the school. But honestly, this school cannot run without volunteers, so please know how much we value your time. You will receive emails throughout the year from this email address.
Below is a link for a google drive document that holds almost all of our volunteer positions. This will work best from your home computer, rather than your smart phone. When you are opening the google document you will see a spreadsheet with TABS on the bottom if you are using a PC or Android Device. If you are using an IPhone or a MacBook, the TABS will be on the Top. You will probably have to scroll to the right to see all of them. The TABS currently on the spreadsheet include the following: Room Parents, Misc Positions, Fall Bazaar, Spring Fling, Volleyball, Basketball, Scrip Volunteers, Field Day and Archery Tournaments. Simply click on the different tabs and look at the available options. When you find things you would like to volunteer for, click next to the number and type your name. Google will Auto save your name once it is typed in. This document will then always be in your google drive and auto updated throughout the year.
If you are struggling in anyway please email me! I will gladly help you. Please do not contact Wendy in the office; we do not want to add to her workload.
Thanks so much in advance!
Volunteers and drivers... We are obligated to comply with a new Archdiocesan policy. If you plan to either serve as a volunteer or an event/trip driver during the upcoming school year, you must complete the following trainings - Safe Environments
and Be Smart Drive Safe
. These trainings can be found at cmgconnect.org
. We are part of the Archdiocese of Dubuque. If you have already completed the Driver course, you will not be required to take it again, but all volunteers that work with or around our students must complete the Safe Environments course (It is a 75 minute video).
The kick off assembly for next summer’s Washington DC trip will be Wednesday 9/5 at 2-3:25pm in the high school auditorium. The parent meeting will be Sunday 9/16 in the auditorium at 4pm.
Prayer is integral to living our faith. What is prayer? How do we pray? Why do we pray? When? What's the point? Our primary goal this year is to address prayer with our students that is meaningful to them, but we need your help. Please speak to your child(ren) regularly this year about prayer. If you would like suggestions or resources to assist you, please contact your child's teacher.
