St. Paul encourages parents to actively participate in school life, supporting our students and staff and fostering productive and positive relationships between parents and school. Various volunteer opportunities enable parents to select areas of interest. Many parents help out with Parent-Teacher Leagues (PTL) - sponsored school activities. Family fellowship events such as back to school picnics and the PTL Benefit Auction build relationships among school families and staff. Assisting in the classroom, library and computer lab enriches our programs, and our kitchen volunteers enable us to offer a complete hot lunch program. St. Paul Church families, see the information below about Parent Partnership volunteer hours.
All volunteers who work with children at St. Paul Lutheran School must comply with clearance screening.
Click to find out all that PTL has to offer! St. Paul utilizes a variety of fundraising opportunities and events through the Parent-Teacher League. Its purpose is to bring a closer relation and better understanding between the Board of Christian Education, teachers and parents of St. Paul Lutheran School. It is also set up to encourage more intelligent cooperation in the training of the child, and to promote such united efforts that will secure for the child the highest advantages in his/her spiritual, mental, physical and social development. The PTL board is a voting board that decides where fundraising monies might be well spent to enhance the education of our students and continuing educational needs of our staff. These decisions are made with the input of the principal, teachers, staff, and parents.
Outreach and Service Projects
In teaching proper stewardship of the many blessings given to us, we promote mission work, service projects, and community outreach. Recent projects have included making Valentine cards for Mott Children's Hospital, collecting and filling bags ("Hope Totes") with toiletries to be distributed through the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries, and visiting nursing homes. We have also collected offerings for such ministries as International Child Care and Hearts for Jesus. Kitchen
The kitchen relies on many volunteers to help provide tasty, healthy lunches for our students. You can assist by coming into school and helping to prepare and serve food. From time to time, we also need people to help from home by washing the aprons and other kitchen linens. If you would like to help, please contact Donna Fehrle
The library loves to have parents volunteer for a variety of tasks. Kindergarten parents, family members, and friends can be "Mystery Readers", a special, unannounced guest who picks a favorite book to share with the class. Parents of other students are also welcome to read to their children's class during library time. Mrs. Walters can always use help with other tasks, including restacking books, sorting and organizing the library. Please contact your kindergartener's teacher to be a mystery reader. For all other library volunteer opportunities, email Laurie Walters.
