Safe Environment

Parent Participation

There are many ways parents participate in the education of their child at Holy Spirit. Some parents are active during the school day by:

  • volunteering in a classroom or in the library;
  • helping supervise recess;
  • serving hot lunch;
  • coaching the athletic teams;
  • chaperoning middle school dances;
  • helping out on field trips;
  • helping prepare classroom materials; or
  • helping with our annual book fair.

Other parents volunteer "behind the scenes" by:

  • participating in the planning of our annual fundraiser, Night of Spirit;
  • being part of groups such as the PTA, Marketing Committee, Art Adventure Team, or the School Advisory Committee.

If you would like to volunteer in any of these capacities, please call the school office or contact Dr. Krieger or Dr. Adrian directly. Please scroll down to see our volunteer requirements.

Volunteering at Holy Spirit School

Protecting children, youth and vulnerable adults is of highest importance at parishes and Catholic schools throughout the archdiocese.

All clergy and parish, school and archdiocese employees, as well as volunteers who have either regular or unsupervised interaction with minors of vulnerable adults must complete the Essential 3 requirements: participate in VIRTUS safe environment training, undergo a criminal background check and adhere to a code of conduct.

Catholic schools and parish faith formation and youth ministry programs have been teaching children and youth age-appropriate lessons about personal safety and sexual abuse prevention since 2006.
