Volunteering Requirements at SCS
Get Involved — Volunteer!
The St. Catharine School motto speaks to our community’s commitment to living a well-balanced Christian life. As parents, we consistently strive to demonstrate by our actions those virtues and behaviors we wish to foster in our children.
St. Catharine School provides countless opportunities for parents to demonstrate the virtue of service to our children. One way, in particular, is for members of our PTA (every parent and guardian with a child at the school is a PTA member) to volunteer your time at different events throughout the school year.
Protecting God’s Children Background Check Process:
Fingerprinting and Virtus
Make an account. You may sign up for a class/session at one of our area church’s or if you have confirmed with Tammy Sablom in the Child Protection Office you may be eligible for a at home video link. If this is the case when it is time to select a session just hit “continue.”
Once you have made your account email child protection your full name, email, phone and your new “username” for your Virtus account.
If you are attending a class once you have attended the class email a copy of your certificate to the child protection office.
If you are having a at home link once completed send a copy of the certificate to the child protection office.
New Volunteer Fingerprints
You will have your finger prints done with IdentoGO. You will have to pre-schedule your appointment. You may schedule this appointment on line or by phone.
