Parent Volunteers

We couldn’t do what we do at St. Irene School without all of our wonderful parents! Their time, talent and support of our school is one of the main ingredients of our success.

Each family is asked to give 20 hours of service to the school as a volunteer. This can range from serving as lunch supervisors, to stuffing brown envelopes, to taking tickets at special events to helping during classroom Christmas parties. There are literally hundreds of ways to volunteer!

The core of our parent brigade are our three boards:

  • PACE - Parents Active in Catholic Education, our home/school group
  • Athletic Board – stewards of our sports program
  • School Board – an advisory board for our pastor and principal and the “arms and legs” of marketing and governance issues

For more information, or to learn more about any of these boards, click on the links above or contact the office.
