St. Croix Catholic School welcomes the participation of parents, grandparents, and parish members in classroom and special activities. Please watch our weekly FYI e-newsletter for opportunities.
Opportunities are available for many types of activities. Our Board of Directors, Endowment Committee, Home and School Association, and Booster Club all are comprised of parents, alumni and parish members. These groups meet at least monthly.
Many classrooms welcome the talents of volunteers as classroom assistants. Our volunteers might be found making copies, putting up bulletin boards, checking out library books, reading or playing math games with small groups of children or even teaching a special activity for the whole class. These volunteers support the teachers in many ways.
Volunteers can also choose to help by fundraising, coaching sports teams, serving lunches, supervising children on field trips, in the lunchroom or on the playground, assisting with school pictures or hearing and vision screening.
All volunteers are required to have a completed Background Check, to complete Virtus training provided by the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, and to sign a Volunteer Code of Conduct. Sign up for a Virtus class and complete the information for a Background Check and Code of Conduct by going to www.virtusonline.org. All three of these requirements will need to be updated every three years that you are volunteering.
You can print out instructions for:
- Registering for a Virtus class, completing a background check, and signing a Code of Conduct for the first time;
- Renewing your Virtus background check and Code of Conduct status.
