Volunteering at St. Paul's School

As a school family, we ask you to search out your passion, expertise, and talents to join others in our ministry here at St. Paul's school. No experience is needed for any role and we offer plenty of support. We are blessed by every parent who volunteers! YOU make a difference, and serve as a wonderful role model of involvement to our student body.

That’s right, we said free!  We will be offering free coffee between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m. each Wednesday morning.  Stay and socialize with other Early Childhood and/or school parents or fill-up as you go on your way.  Enjoy, a cup of coffee on us!

2018-2019 School Theme

“God at Work”….What an appropriate School and ECC theme for the next 18 months or so.  We begin this school year with the excitement of the ground-breaking at the North Campus, watching the destruction and demolition of the 1984 wing of the school, and then being able to watch step by step as a new K-8 school building is erected.  We are so excited that this is going to occur on our campus, beginning this fall.

Changes for 2018-2019

With the new building and physical changes to the North Campus beginning this fall, we have made changes to classroom locations for this upcoming school year.  We assume these changes will remain in place until we are ready to move into the new K-8 building (approximately mid-year of the 2019-2020 academic year).
