SAINT BONIFACE CATHOLIC SCHOOL VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

These volunteers help their children’s teachers with planning and assisting activities such as parties, field trips and the teacher’s requests. Other activities may come up throughout the year at the discretion of the teacher.  The time commitment ranges from 2-3 hours per month on average; exact times may vary.

The Marketing Committee is a group of parents and teachers who work to promote Saint Boniface Catholic School in the Community.
  • Movie Nights – 
Occasionally during the year, movie nights are held for groups of students (K-2, 3-4, 5-6). Volunteers are needed to send out flyers to the parents, choose the movie with the approval of the principal, help with snacks, and provide supervision the evening of the movie.
  • Playground Supervision & Cafeteria Coverage – 
These volunteers are needed each day that lunch is served.  The volunteers will assist the cafeteria staff by preparing lunch trays as needed, distributing milk, and selling drinks, ice cream and snacks.  The volunteer will then accompany the children outside for recess.  Parent volunteers wear a bright orange vest for ease in identifying them on the playground.  The teacher and volunteer have Two-Way radios for immediate communication with the office should an emergency arise. Volunteers may choose to work once a month, twice a month, weekly, or any schedule that suits.  The first lunch shift volunteers will be needed from 11:00 until 12:00. The second lunch shift will run from 11:30 until 12:30.
