We welcome you to be involved in your child's education by being in partnership with us. Showing an interest in your child’s education, setting high expectations for achievement and letting your child know you believe in his or her abilities sets a positive context for growth and achievement. In view of this, we invite you to be a volunteer in the school. In order to do this, however, it is essential that you be in full compliance by completing the following four steps as mandated by the Diocese of Pittsburgh.
