Current Families

At Saint Zachary School, we believe involved families help strengthen the school community while providing an example to our children. Each family’s participation is appreciated, as is the support of the parish and community at large.  For example, a small amount of your time may help a child improve their reading skills, and may help you understand how vital volunteers are in the daily operation of the school.  There are a number of ways to volunteer your time at Saint Zachary School. These include but are not limited to: being a classroom helper, coaching athletics, or joining one of the various committees that sponsor school programs or events. Your time and talent are greatly appreciated.  We look forward to working with you throughout the school year to make our events and activities the best they can be for our children.

Please review volunteer requirements set forth by the

Archdiocese of Chicago for the Protection of Children and Youth.

Family Involvement

We are always in need of volunteers to help make our family and fundraising events successful. You can make a difference by volunteering!  Be sure to check out the volunteer opportunities available for the 2016-2017 school year. Committees and event chairpersons will keep you posted throughout the year.

Family Involvement is vital to our school’s success. There are many opportunities to help both in school, out of school, nights and weekends so even if you haven’t completed the volunteer requirements for working with children, you can help!  Every family will be required to donate 15 hours of time during the school year.  Every hour after that 15 hours up to 100 hours will be paid back in a 1 dollar per hour tuition credit.  If volunteers hours are not completed by April 30, 2017, your FACTS account will be billed $150.00.
