Protecting God's Children

Our families volunteer 10 to 20 hours every school year. We are very fortunate to have committed parents like you who jump at the opportunity to help out! Before doing any work at the school, you must attend a Protecting God's Children training and complete a background screening online. If you don't have access to a computer, make an appointment with the school office for assistance. 

If you already took the training, just complete stage 2. New families must complete stages 1 and 2. Here is how to do it:
