Cafeteria Volunteers

Reminder...Just a reminder that the hour requirement is PER SEMESTER. All families are asked to work 10 hours in the fall and 10 hours in the spring. Incomplete hours for the fall have been billed already and incomplete hours for the spring will be billed in June. Volunteers can be anyone in the immediate or extended family that is over 18 years of age. At the end of each semester, those who were unable to serve the full 10 hours for whatever reason will be invoiced at $15 per missing hour.


Our cafeteria cannot function effectively without volunteers. Below are the people that have signed up for shifts next school week.

If you cannot work your shift, you MUST secure your own sub.

We will be offering Level 1 (ages 3-6), Level 2 (ages 6-9), and Level 3 (ages 9-12). This Montessori-based approach fosters a child’s relationship with God through the Scripture and Liturgy.

We would like to accommodate the best we can to your schedules. If you are interested in having your child(ren) in the program or know someone who is, please contact Christine Hassink at chassink@churchofsaintmary.com for a student schedule survey. Thank you!
