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)
First Annual Crusader Walkathon
PTG’s largest fundraiser of the year: 13 October, 12:40 – 2 pm – rain or shine.
Chairpersons: Kristie Steitz and Rachel Mollen
Best of the Bede
Helpers are needed for our school’s annual end-of-the-year “field day” to help keep it safe and organized for our kids – supervise games/activities, work the snack and water table, donate snacks and help clean up.
Chairperson: Christie Ryan
Recess and Lunchroom Volunteer Coordination
Everyday, parents are needed to help out in the lunchroom – serving food, selling items – as well as supervising the playground. If you have daytime availability, please consider helping as often as you can.
Back to School Clean Up Day
Join us at St. Bede to get the grounds ready for a great year. Meet new and old friends, spend time working together, and bring a picnic lunch to enjoy once the work is done. There will also be free uniforms available
Ice Skating Parties
During the winter, the St. Bede PTG rents out the Schenley Ice Rink and sells admission to our families.
PTG Pizza Lunch
The Pizza Lunch has been a great monthly fundraiser that the kids love! Helpers are needed to serve lunch that day.
Santa’s Treasure Shop
Many elves are needed the night before the shop opens to help display our gift items and the day of the event to work the “register” and wrap all of the gifts. Bakers are also needed to stock the bake sale!
Show your school spirit and order St. Bede School and Athletic apparel.
Teacher Appreciation Lunch in August
Parents share their culinary talents as a small token of appreciation for all that our teachers do during Catholic Schools Week – we need chefs/bakers and help to set-up, serve and clean up.
Teacher Appreciation Week in May
Students and parents honor our teachers and staff during this national week-long celebration.
The Uniform Exchange is a great way to add a few extra, free uniform items to your child’s collection. Uniforms will be available during various PTG events – feel free to take what you need, or donate what your children no longer use.
Be a friend to a new family by welcoming them to the school community and helping them navigate the St. Bede lingo and events.
