Volunteer Opportunities

Parental involvement is a vital and necessary component of the teaching and learning process at St. Barnabas School.  Students and their parents are welcomed into the school family as part of a larger faith community.  Parents are given the opportunity to become involved in a variety of ways, such as volunteering in the classroom, library or computer lab, serving as a member of the School Board, coaching athletics or participating in special programs offered through the Family/School Association (FSA).

Simply click on the link below to see a listing of our many volunteer opportunities. If you would like to sign up or just want more information, you can fill out the interest survey and submit it now. The appropriate organization will get back to you.
