2016-2017 St. Peter's School Volunteer Form
Volunteering is a great way to support St. Peter's School and get involved in the school community. The events supported by parent volunteers raise money each year to support the St. Peter's School Scholar Fund, Faculty Professional Development, and other important school initiatives. Volunteering at St. Peter's is a highly rewarding experience. Any amount of time and effort is greatly appreciated and really makes a difference. Please join us!
 
Please indicate your preferences below and either submit the form online or print out the form and hand it in to the school receptionist. If you are interested in taking a leadership role, please let us know on your form. If you have any questions, please email Jodi Lokoff and Jennie Pritzker, Parents' Association Presidents at: parentsassociation@st-peters-school.org.
 
After-school care is offered to you free of charge while you are volunteering during normal ASCP hours (from dismissal-6 pm on regular school days).
