May God bless you for giving your time and talent so generously to Cathedral Parish School. Our volunteers make Cathedral Parish School a better place because of the unselfish sharing of time and talent.
Volunteer opportunities are announced throughout the year by the school and the PTO. Cathedral Parish School families are required to donate 25 volunteer hours. A minimum of 10 volunteer hours MUST be spent helping with the Cathedral Parish School Festival.
A record of volunteer hours for each family is maintained. Each family will be billed at the rate of $40.00 per hour for each hour not met. In addition, each family is responsible for the sale and/or purchase of three (3) books of Cathedral Parish School Festival Raffle Tickets.
The Diocese of St. Augustine requires all school volunteers to complete fingerprinting, a background check, and the Protecting God's Children program workshop. A certificate of completion from the workshop must be given to Cathedral Parish School as evidence of attendance and completion. In addition, we require three personal references. Fingerprinting opportunities will be announced via e-mail or you may contact the Front Office.
Background checks are valid for five years from date of clearance. If you have already been fingerprinted and cleared through another parish or school in the Diocese of St. Augustine, you do not need to be fingerprinted again for five years.
It is the volunteer's responsibility to obtain and forward the fingerprints/background clearance and/or Certificate of Completion of Protecting God's Children workshop to Cathedral Parish School for our records.
Please sign in at the office each time you come to volunteer. You will receive a volunteer badge. All parents are to wear a badge while on campus, whether they will be in a classroom for just a few minutes or an extended period of time.
All volunteers will track their hours and activities through Sign Up Genius (effective Fall 2017), an online voluteer tracking and information service. All volunteers and visitors should continue to log-in at the office to receive a badge and record your presence on campus.
