Give Us the Gift of Your Time
At St. John Paul II Catholic School, we not only welcome volunteers from the community, we depend on them. Volunteers play an important role in supporting our scholars. Opportunities to help range from recess monitoring to helping eighth grade students prepare for the state standardized tests.
With your tutoring help, we are able to give individual attention to scholars who need help progressing toward proficiency. You are an important part of this transformational education.
Our Safe Environment Protection Practices
