Saint Agnes is continually striving to provide the best Catholic education possible for our students. To that end, we are always looking for creative ways to model Catholic virtues, enhance our learning environment, and lower expenses. One way we can achieve these goals is to utilize volunteers as effectively as possible.
We are blessed to have parents who give back so generously with their time and talents. It is our hope to further encourage these service opportunities within our school community. E3 is required for volunteering with youth. We look forward to working with you!
Below you will find a list of current school volunteer activities along with brief descriptions and an online sign-up form. Some are one-time events and others continue for the full school year. These are great ways to get involved in the life of your child’s school and to connect with other school parents.
