VOLUNTEER

SUPPORT THE SCHOOL YOU LOVE!

Establishing an environment that welcomes giving of ourselves, sets the example for our youth by exemplifying the very Beatitudes Pier Giorgio Frassati did throughout his lifetime.  When you volunteer your time, you make the school a richer place for your children and their classmates. You also get to see your children spend their day. When you volunteer, you also build relationships with the other parents. This is important for creating a vibrant, supportive community while having fun and making friends!

Please keep an eye out for communication in regards to volunteer opportunities from our Frassati Family Association (FFA) and our school offices via email or click this button for current opportunities.
