There are many ways to be active in our community. You can spend time in your child’s classroom assisting with group activities, driving on field trips or assist in planning classroom activities. There are many coaching opportunities available to lead an athletic team after school and you can also spend lunch with our students by volunteering for yard duty.
St. Nicholas School also relies on volunteers to help organize and implement school events and fundraisers.
