Volunteer In Partnership (VIP) 2021-2022
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all the new and returning families of this wonderful community of Saint Thomas the Apostle School.

Your gifts and talents will be celebrated here. Our parents are the primary educators of their children and are a welcome partner in the school experience. With so many ways to participate, you can quickly become immersed in our school community!

To get involved, start by selecting any opportunities you are interested in below. Informational emails will soon follow for each group that you join.

Additionally, all volunteers must complete Virtus Training, have a VIP Background Check, and agree to our Standards of Ministerial Behavior.

Thank you in advance for all you do! You are all appreciated!
