Good Shepherd is a school that relies on volunteer help. There are many opportunities for parents, grandparents, and willing helpers to use their talents. We are grateful to all of our volunteers! If you are interested in volunteering, and your skills don’t match with these opportunities to volunteer, contact the school (ph. 371-0047) and let us know what you are interested in. We can find a spot for your talent.
Recess: During the noon hour, it is our goal to provide time for the teachers to look ahead to the afternoon classes. In order for the teachers to have this time, we need volunteers to supervise the playground. It is our intention to have one volunteer and one teacher during this recess. The volunteer will receive some training but can rely on the teacher for any discipline that may be necessary. Volunteers for noon recess are needed for about 30 minutes.
Librarians: Volunteers who are interested in helping as librarians are needed on a regular basis. We intend to open the library for checking out books once a day. We are looking for a volunteer to be trained to assist children as they check out books. This will also include shelving books as children return them. This volunteer opportunity can take up to one hour a day.
Room Helpers: The room assistant is assigned the kindergarten or the 1st and 2nd grade classroom in order to assist the teacher in any area where the teacher sees a need. The time commitment for this volunteer spot will vary depending on how much you want to be involved.
Room Parents: Two room parents are needed for each of the four classrooms to plan parties and make our teachers feel appreciated around the holidays and on their birthday. You can sign up to be a room parent at school registration in August.
Chaperones: We need drivers who also chaperone when a class takes a field trip. If you are interested in a particular field trip or would like to be called each time we need chaperones, let us know. We are always looking for volunteers who have time during the day. You don’t have to be a parent in order to be a chaperone.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
