An excellent Catholic school provides opportunity for the building and experiencing of community and serving others, in a faith-filled environment.
St. John Bosco Catholic School embraces the active involvement of parents in supporting the education of the students, their safety, and participation in extracurricular activities. Students experience a vast variety of opportunities supported by the dedication of parents and grandparents.
Without parent, grandparent, and family volunteers, many of our events could not occur. Faculty, staff, and club chairs work with parents to find opportunities that best fit skills, interests, and schedules.
Before anyone may work with students, they must have completed Safe Environment Training. It is imperative that all visitors and volunteers are signed in and out with accurate times.
Required Volunteer Hours
Each family is expected to complete 25 volunteer hours each school year. Remember to log your volunteer hours in RenWeb.

It allows for the most flexibility and is a very easy way to fulfill service hours.
