GALA 2020 VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The Annual Holy Trinity Gala is the most important fundraiser of the year. We invite you to consider being a part of the fun by joining our dynamic team of volunteers. Below are two areas we are in need of volunteers for:


* Class Baskets: In past years, each class (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior) makes a "basket" for the Gala. It's approaching that time of year again and we are in need of parents for each grade level to help organize and oversee the creation of the class baskets.


***We auction all 4 class "baskets" at the Live Auction during the Gala.***


The baskets do really well and are loved by all and are well bid on items at the Gala. They help us make meet our fundraising goal and are essential to the success of our Gala. Come be a part of a special group of families that helps make our Gala special.


* Planning and Coordinating: We are putting together our planning and coordinating teams and would love to invite you to join the fun. There is everything from helping advertise our gala, to decorating, planning the dinner, planning games, helping with the Silent and/or Live Auctions. Everything you do helps our Gala, which helps our school.


Helping with the Celtic Gala is a great way to support Holy Trinity and meet other families and work 'behind the scenes'. If you are interested in being on a Class Basket Team or on the Planning and Coordinating Team (or both!), please contact Mrs. Jordanna Richesin: jrichesin@holytrinitychs.org.

Volunteers in the Community

All families are encouraged to volunteer in their communities. Like our students who serve at school AND out in their community, Families can apply up to 10hrs of community service to their 20hr Family Service requirements. If you can wear an HT Spirit T-shirt to a community service event, we'd love a picture so we can share your wonderful community spirit!

All families are asked to complete 20 service hours

EIM TRAINING FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS


Ethics and Integrity Ministry (EIM)

In an effort to protect our children, the Diocese of Austin mandates that all individuals who have contact with our children must be in compliance with the Ethics and Integrity in Ministry Policy, which equips each of us with the tools and knowledge to protect our children from possible abuse and perpetrators. All parents MUST complete this process to volunteer at the school.



Registration is required through the Diocese. In order to register for an EIM Workshop, you must first complete the volunteer application which is on their website. Once you have attended the workshop please submit a copy of the certificate to the school office. This workshop is for new parents and those who are in need of the refresher course.
