2017-2018 St. Paul's Lutheran School of Des Peres

Parent Volunteering Sign-Up

Welcome St. Paul's Parents!

Thank you for choosing three slots.

As a school parent, YOU are making a vital difference at St. Paul’s School when you lend a helping hand this year, sharing the gift of kindness through service.  Many hands make light work, and each year we find that when families pick three spots (or more), then we can continue to host favorite student and family activities.
