2. How do I get involved at St. Robert School?
The Home and School Association has volunteer opportunities that can fit into anyone's schedule - jobs that are large or small, take a few hours or many hours, take place days, evenings or weekends, so that parents can select their own level of involvement. We believe that everyone - kids, parents, and the school benefits when parents are involved. Parents are asked to volunteer for 2 activities during the year.
