Volunteer

At Epiphany Catholic School, parents are always welcome and encouraged to get involved with their child’s education. Being an active part of a child’s educational experience creates an essential bond between home and school. Whether you are able to spend a few hours a week, a few hours a month or a few hours a year, your help is always appreciated.

 

PARTNERSHIP REQUIREMENT: All Preschool-GR 8 parents/guardians must participate in a minimum of fifteen hours of service from our list of approved Partnership opportunities, which is made available in the fall of the school year and updated as needed. Preschool-GR 8 parents/guardians who do not complete the full fifteen-hour requirement by May 13, 2023, will be assessed a $200 Partnership fee, which will be added to their respective TADS account. This requirement will be modified if we are unable to have volunteers in the building.

 

Background Check – The background check is run by an archdiocese-approved agency and provides a criminal history. This is an important step to screen out individuals who might present a danger to children and youth.

Code of Conduct – A person must acknowledge that he or she understands and agrees to the principles and standards outlined in the code of conduct appropriate to his or her employment or ministry. A Code of Conduct training video by Tim O’Malley, Director of Ministerial Standards and Safe Environment (below) is available for public reference.

Safe Environment Training – (Effective July 1, 2020) VIRTUS Online Protecting God’s Children 3.0 and Saint Paul-Minneapolis Reporting Suspected Child Abuse is a 75-minute online awareness training that provides information on the protection of children and vulnerable adults.
