Welcome to St. Veronica

St. Veronica Catholic School  works in partnership with parents to support your child’s intellectual and spiritual development. Parents are the primary educators and so we strive to work in concert with families to provide your child all the support needed.

You can expect regular communication from St. Veronica’s in the form of our weekly newsletter and weekly emails from room parents. Our website provides most of the resources you will need to keep up to date on school events and programs. SchoolSpeak and teacher email communication provide direct access to more specific information.

Parental involvement is critical to the success of your child and of the St. Veronica’s community.  There are many opportunities to volunteer for class, school and parish events. Our parents assist by chaperoning  field trips, facilitating activities in the classroom, organizing community building activities, and, overall by contributing the  time and talent that keeps our community vibrant and running smoothly. In addition, our parent teach  group coordinates fundraising opportunities that contribute to St. Veronica’s operational budget.

Participating in the life of the school builds community and fosters dynamic learning for our students. Your involvement speaks to your child about the importance of his or her education, whether that involvement manifests itself in watching the annual Halloween costume parade, attending our annual Crab Feed, cheering our athletic teams on to victory, sponsoring your child for our walkathon, or volunteering at St. Veronica’s annual fair. We love our parents and appreciate their vital contributions to the St. Veronica’s community!

Volunteering your time

Your time, talent, and treasure are all appreciated here at St. Veronica Catholic School.

It is impossible to name the countless ways our supporters give–in both small and large ways–that have an enormous and lasting impact. Whether through volunteerism or financial support–we are grateful that the tradition of generosity and commitment continues, enriching the school and our students.

Top reasons to give your time

Many of us are very busy parents, with schedules that have us wishing for our own personal assistants. In order to streamline our lives, we tend to focus on the things that are most important, and everything else can be put on the back burner. We are left with very few options and most often, volunteering at school becomes an after thought and not a priority. Yes, volunteering could be exasperating, but if we recognize the benefits that volunteering at our children’s school could bring, then we can be proponents and active participants.

Even through your child might not say it outright, they notice within you are contributing and they truly appreciate it. Some parents have often been told how great their kids feel knowing that their parents helps in their school. No matter how much time you volunteer, it makes a real difference in their lives, as it encourages them to want to give back and grow up to become civic-minded citizens.

No matter how small or insignificant you feel your contribution is, it is much appreciated. Maybe you are a busy parent with quite a few kids and schedules to figure out, with lots of people competing for you attention and time. Even if all you can manage is to contribute an hour or two a month, this still makes a meaningful difference.

There is a reason why volunteering falls under the umbrella of social good. The good part of it truly makes you feel good. It is something that cannot be quantified or substantiated, it is just that feeling you get in your heart when you make a contribution to the wellbeing of others, no matter how small it is. It could be helping to hang up posters, or lend a hand with the festival, or as simple as doing extended care, or helping in the library. If you are having one of those moments where you need something to lift you up and make you have that feel good feeling, try volunteering at school. Instant gratification!
