“The world is hugged by the faithful arms of volunteers.” –Terri Guillemets
Each year, we are grateful for the many parents in our STA community who help us with various events, activities and efforts. Below are brief descriptions of volunteer opportunities for the 2018-19 school year. We hope you will consider choosing to participate in an area that suits your availability and interest. If you are interested in a certain area (or areas), please email your information and interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Community Events- Throughout the year, STA holds various events that help our community bond and flourish from the inside out. (One example is “Vines & Steins”- a parent/faculty social gathering held on–campus in the fall.)
Athletics: Help at athletic games (tickets, concession stand, “the Holy Grill”) and events.
Faculty-Staff Appreciation Events- Parental gifts of time and talent are especially appreciated in showing gratitude and acknowledgement to our faculty and staff.
Facilities/Gardening- Our C&W Services crew always welcomes contributions to our gardening efforts as well as help with set up and break-down before/after school events, and campus painting projects.
Admissions/Marketing- Serve as adjunct Admissions Team Members! Help distribute STA admissions/marketing materials to local real estate offices, area businesses, dental offices, churches, etc.
Campus Ministry- Adult participants are sought to help with this year’s “Saints Taking Action Service Experiences.”
Public Relations- We are always seeking Parent Ambassadors who are willing to present and represent STA at Open House as well as various community/parish/town events.
Last Blast- A safe, chemical-free final event for senior students, “Last Blast” requires parents of seniors to serve as volunteers in various capacities (chairperson, bus chaperones, decorating, site hosts, etc.).
Aquinas Fund - The Aquinas Fund (the school's annual fund) is the main source of fundraising at St. Thomas Aquinas. Our school relies on the annual fund to balance the operating budget. St. Thomas Aquinas does not receive funding from the Diocese. Participation in the Aquinas Fund by our entire school community is the key to our success.
Specifically, Parent and Alumni participation in this annual fund is critical to the success of the campaign. The Aquinas Fund Team meets throughout the year. 2018-19 events include the Golf Open (October 1), Spring Gala, philanthropic endeavors, and alumni outreach.
Support/Adminstrative Roles - Many hands are needed in support roles. Every year there are new ways to become involved. Not sure where you fit in? Just ask! We'll find the perfect place for you to help.
