Volunteering

Volunteer OverviewParents are encouraged to be as involved in Saint Timothy Catholic School as possible. By volunteering, parents help build community while providing valuable services to Saint Timothy Catholic School. The talents, services, and generosity which families generate on behalf of the school benefit both students and the school community as a whole.  Our volunteers are absolutely necessary to maintain and expand many of the academic and extracurricular services offered by STS for our children.

Operations during COVID-19: This year, volunteering will look a little different.  Although we must limit the number of visitors on campus, there are still several ways that families can dedicate their time and talents to support our school. Throughout the school year, the Room Parents will be sharing new and creative ways to support the students, teachers, and school in socially distant or virtual ways.

VIRTUS Clearance:  The safety of our students is our utmost priority- please read more about ways to protect children here.  In order to create a safe environment for all our students, Saint Timothy Catholic School requires that all volunteers who come in contact with students go through the VIRTUS child safety training course, as well as a background check.  In an effort to streamline the background check application process, the Office of Child Protection is now offering the application online, which can be accessed and signed electronically. Once you have completed the application process and have your CPS Form notarized, please notify Mrs. Kathy Moses to schedule an appointment.  Please refer to this checklist to guide the process.

The VIRTUS Course “Protecting God’s Children” is mandatory for all parent volunteers and will be offered at various dates and locations.  You may check for availability on the VIRTUS website by selecting the Arlington Diocese.

Please note that requirements for Child Protection Compliance include both the Virtus course and online application.

Parent Volunteers

In order to volunteer, all parents need to be compliant with the Diocese’s “Protecting God’s Children” program requirements. No adult will be allowed into the school to interact with children in the classroom, cafeteria, playground, field trips, field day, coaching, special classes, Colonial Day/Medieval Day, etc. who has not met these deadlines. All adults must complete the online application and complete the four hour VIRTUS course.  Saint Timothy School maintains a list of compliant parents who will be granted admittance to volunteer.

Fees

Please note that a $35 processing fee will be due at the time of appointment with Mrs. Kathy Moses.  Please make checks payable to St. Timothy Catholic
