Volunteer Opportunities

St. Monica Catholic School Signup Sheets for Volunteer Opportunities

We rely on our valuable volunteers’ energy, creativity, and input, AKA amazing parents!

Below are many of the service opportunities currently available.

We encourage parents to volunteer and become involved. However, to ensure a secure school for our students, we require that parents complete “Safe Environment” training before serving in a volunteer capacity. The Archdiocese of Seattle mandates this training. Please visit https://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/ to complete the background check and signup for a class.

Service Commitment- All our families commit during registration to a minimum of thirty (30) service hours between July 1st and June 30th to the school. Service hours may be earned in school or parish activities.

  • Volunteer Hours are recorded in the Facts Family Portal, and opportunities are continuously added throughout the school year as we plan our Parent Club events.
