We rely on volunteers for many things. From landscaping to assisting with classroom parties, to building a playground fence or helping raise funds for our technology program, our volunteers give so much to make students’ experiences at Mother Seton School as awesome as possible. Most of this is through our Home and School Association (HSA).
Many of the traditions that we love–like Fall Fest, Father-Daughter Dance, and the Carnival–are only possible because there are people willing to step up and make sure it happens. We are all very busy with jobs, children, sports, and other obligations, and sometimes it seems that adding just one more thing to our already overflowing to-do list is impossible. How do you squeeze in one more obligation in an already-packed day? We never want people to feel overwhelmed. But the truth is, we are a small school community and we just don’t have the resources to continue these and other such events without help from our parents.
We appreciate all our volunteers and we are forever grateful for the time, talents, and treasures that we receive from our community. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to become one of our cherished volunteers, for whatever reason, we ask you to prayerfully consider sharing your time and talents. Many of our current volunteers have been involved for years and will be moving on, either because their children are graduating or they need a break, or they want to take on another challenge. We need people willing to step up and step into their shoes so that we can continue to give to our students the best possible experience.
If you have suggestions or would like to be contacted about volunteering, please email the HSA at hsa(at)mothersetonschool.org. (Replace (at) with the @ symbol) Also, watch for volunteer requests coming home for our end-of-year events, such as the Carnival and Field Day. Over the summer, a volunteer interest form will be sent home with more details about opportunities to volunteer.
Thank you for all you do to make our school community a welcoming place of learning!
