Volunteers

Volunteers serve a very important role at St. Francis Xavier School.  As a volunteer you help to support educational programming and experiences for our students.  We have several ways for you to volunteer at SFX.

Volunteers are required to complete a Virtus training , here are the volunteer Virtus requirements.

All employees and volunteers who have contact with students undergo thorough screening, including background checks through the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation & Identification (BCI&I). For complete information on screening policies, see the revised Policy for the Safety of Children in Matters of Sexual Abuse, section 1.2 (p. 3).

To learn more about our different opportunities for volunteers, please see our volunteer guide below.

In an effort to respect our students’ privacy, we request all volunteers to limit their cell phone usage during their volunteer time. This will include all taking of photos, texting, or calling our students’ parents/families. We thank you for understanding and the gift of your time.

Room Parent

DESCRIPTION OF RESPONSIBILITIES

Room Parents are responsible for coordinating parties/field day with the teachers, setting up, and cleaning up for each gathering.  Room Parents and Teachers work together. It is the responsibility of the Room Parents to liaise with the teacher, at least two weeks prior to the gathering. Upon the scheduled gathering, the Room Parents and Teacher will assist each other in facilitating. The Teacher will remain with his/her class to maintain control and discipline of the students, at all times.

The Room Parents are responsible for contacting classroom parents, via telephone or letter, to request donations for the party. Please allow the parents ample time to send in the items requested. Snacks, drinks, games, paper products and such.  We ask that we limit the number of volunteers to three per classroom for each event for the safety of all the teachers and staff.  (Please remind parents that they must be sign in first and obtain a visitor’s pass.)

Keep in mind; most of the parties are an hour long, which provides you with a fair amount of time to provide snacks, crafts, games, or other activities.  It is up to you and the teacher to decide what will make each gathering a success.

All classroom gatherings are to be held within their respective classrooms.

Please check first with your teacher for any special requests or for any changes in set-up times. Allow ample time for clean up, following the party, and prior to dismissal.

In the event the Room Parents cannot be present to set up and/or clean up, someone should be specifically designated to serve in this capacity. Again, please include other parents to assist you with a limit of three per classroom.

Room Parents in each specific grade level must work together to coordinate the gatherings to ensure that all gatherings remain consistent and to avoid competition between individual classrooms. THIS MEANS: Communicate with your fellow Room Parents within your grade level, so that classes within the same grade level receive similar parties. This does not mean that parties must be identical. By all means, be creative.

When providing snacks keep school policy in mind: check with the teacher for food allergies, it is important to provide a safe environment for all students. For field day, a hot dog lunch will be provided and all students. No outside food will replace the provided lunch scheduled by the PTA.

In an effort to respect our students’ privacy, we request all volunteers to limit their cell phone usage during their volunteer time. This will include all taking of photos, texting, or calling our students’ parents/families. We thank you for understanding and the gift of your time.

Library Volunteer

Lunchroom Volunteer

We are once again asking for every parent’s cooperation with our lunchroom program.  With the help of volunteer parents they strive to insure that our children are able to eat and play in a safe and comfortable environment. However, if we do not have enough Parent volunteers, our goals cannot be achieved, and it is our children who ultimately suffer. In order for the daily lunch time routine to run smoothly, we estimate that we will need at least six adult volunteers each day to help out.

We would like every parent to volunteer for lunchroom duty.  For those who have been faithful in coming to volunteer in the lunchroom/recess on a regular basis, we can’t thank you enough.

The St. Francis Xavier School community relies on the commitment that our volunteers make to our school.
