HSA Thank You & Event Volunteer Info

Thank you to everyone who joined us – both virtually and in-person – at last night’s HSA meeting!  We hope to see all of our families getting involved this year with helping us plan and run our fun (and fundraising) events.

As noted last evening, we are going to need several volunteers to help with our school’s upcoming Scholastic Book Fair.  This year, students in Pre-K through 8th Grade will once again have the opportunity to attend a physical book fair in our gym and pick out the books they wish to purchase.  Helpers for this event will be needed as follows:

Setup: October 1st (after school) and during the day on October 2nd; and
During the book fair:  October 4th – 7th (during school hours).

A sign-up form will be sent out next week.

Please note that in order to volunteer for school events, parents/grandparents/etc. must meet the following requirements:

1. Background check on file (call Mrs. Sager in the Main Office to get the form if you have not already completed this for SJS in years past)

2. Complete the Virtus (Protecting God’s Children) Training Program (if you have not already completed this in years past, see info below).

3. Be fully vaccinated (submit a copy of your card to Mrs. Sager in the main office).
