Opportunities abound for parent volunteers at St. Bede School! From coordinating some of the biggest events of the year like the annual social / gala or the student’s favorite end of the year “field day”, Best of the Bede, there is something for everyone.

At the classroom level, parents can get involved in helping with the monthly teacher brunches, the monthly trips to the Frick, planting and science activities and more. On a daily basis, parents can volunteer for recess, lunch, gym, and library duty. For more information on how to get involved, contact the PTG or the school office. We look forward to volunteering with you!

Every year, committee chairs and other volunteers gather to help with the following events and activities (Please see the school calendar for date of each function / event)

Adult Social
