St. Patricia School has always welcomed students and their families. We are blessed that parents and grandparents have become an integral part of our school. Parents volunteer in a variety of ways: Lunch Supervisors, Monday Hot Lunch, Book Fair, Bunco, helping run various events, decorating, or chaperoning field trips. All parents of St. Patricia students are expected to contribute volunteer hours.
All volunteers who have contact with students at school or at school-related activities, including class activities, lunch duty, coaching, chaperone field trips, etc. must complete VIRTUS certification and a criminal background check. Each year, all adults must also complete a DCFS CANTS form.
These forms are available to download on our website here.
Fundraising is essential to keeping tuition costs down. St. Patricia School participates in the following programs: Shoparoo, Boxtops for Education, Script, and Dining for Dollars. These programs offer easy effort, everyday opportunities to raise money for our school! We also hold various fundraising activities throughout the year, such as Spirits of the Season and Bunco Night.
