Parents & Volunteers

Parents & Volunteers

 

Parents are encouraged to actively participate in the Catholic Regional Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO).  This organization helps our school system by building a spirit of community and common purpose through the sponsorship of many events and activities for all the members of the GWCRS System.  Each school also has a P.T.O. chapter which focuses on addressing the specific needs of that school, especially its students, parents and faculty.  These chapters will meet regularly throughout the school year to discuss issues and topics of common interest, to host speakers with expertise in these areas, and to plan activities congruent with the school's mission.

 

Also, each school welcomes parent volunteers in a wide range of academic and supervisory activities.  Parents interested in participating in this way should contact the school Principal for further information.  However, it should be noted that parent volunteers usually are not assigned to activities within the same classroom as their child.

 

Any parent/guardian who wishes to participate as a parent volunteer in any capacity in the school must first have a Diocesan BCI (background check) and go through the Safe Environment Training. At this time there is no cost for this to be completed. Completed disclaimer forms must be submitted through your child's school or the Regional Office only, not through another agency. Forms are available at either school or can be downloaded from the BCI link in this section.

 

All volunteers must complete the required Diocesan Safe Environment Program and a BCI Disclaimer form prior to volunteering.
