Dear Parents/Guardians:

                                               Re: Volunteers Needed
St. Monica Catholic School is looking for interested volunteers who would like to share their time and talents with
the staff and students of our school. Volunteers strengthen and enrich educational programs and foster greater
cooperation among all the partners in our Catholic school community.
Our school welcomes volunteer involvement in a variety of areas and capacities. Volunteers may provide short term
or long term commitment to such things as: supervising on school excursions, serving as a guest speaker, or helping
to run special events such as Book Fair, Track and Field Day, Play Day, and Pizza Days.
Volunteers derive a great sense of fulfillment and satisfaction from their work and our school life is certainly very
much enhanced by their generous efforts.
If you are interested in becoming a school volunteer, through the giving of your time, service and skills, please
complete the following, and send this form back to school.
