Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering is a great way to support Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic School.  Not only is it vital to our day to day operations, but it is a great way to meet other parents, faculty and staff.  The time and dedication that our community members share with us is deeply appreciated.

The Our Lady of the Wayside volunteer program offers a variety of volunteer opportunities within a varied schedule and seasonal preferences from which families can choose.

The volunteer program is coordinated through the Family and School Association.  The FSA is able to provide so much to OLW School because of the many parent volunteers who donate time and talents.  We strongly encourage all families to volunteer for at least three jobs, including one related to the annual auction.  Please contact our volunteer captain, Erika Newell at ERIKA412@comcast.net to receive your personal link to the electronic volunteer sign-up site.

Volunteers who have regular contact with children, or are in a perceived position of trust, are required to register and attend a Virtus Training Seminar, complete a background check, and sign a DCFS (Cants) and Code of Conduct.  Please return the CANTS Form and the Code of Conduct Signature Page to the school office.  Thank you
