Volunteer Information

There are many ways for parents to get involved at Saint Stephen of Hungary School by volunteering for a Parents’ Association event or committee. Parent volunteers are vital to school events, without your support we would not be able to offer our students a well-rounded educational experience. When you contribute your time to our school, children learn the value of volunteering while you get to know the Saint Stephen community!

If you would like to volunteer for a specific event please e-mail parentsassociation@saintstephenschool.org or visit https://parentsassociation.online/Volunteer

Class Representatives

 

A Class Representative (also known as a class parent) serves as a liaison between the classroom teacher, the parents/guardians of the class and the Parents Association at large. The Class Representative also helps to foster community within their class by having regular interaction with the other parents such as proposing ways to connect such as play dates, coffees/cocktails or other family get-togethers appropriate to the class.
