Volunteers Needed on June 11
Mrs. Spillman is seeking volunteers for The American Lung Association’s “Fight for Air Climb” event on June 11. The fundraiser takes place on the field at Sporting KC’s Children’s Mercy Park on June 11. Volunteers are needed from 7:00AM until 12:00PM to hand out water, cheer on the climbers, etc. Please visit www.stasaints.net/theater for the link to sign up. Students can get service hours for next year while having a lot of fun for a great cause. Parents and siblings are welcome to join too! 
Parent Volunteers
The best way to meet more parents and feel a part of the Saints community is to become involved and volunteer at Parent Guild, Extravaganza, and the Advancement Department events.

A volunteer form for the 2022-23 academic year is open. These are the first names to be contacted when the committee chairs are planning all the fun events for our parent community. It is also a great source for your calendar “Save the Dates”. 
PARENT VOLUNTEER FORMS
 
Saint Thomas Aquinas High School Camps and also the Strength, Speed & Agility Program registration is open!

And if you have grade school aged children, our Grade School Summer Camp registration is also open!

We are excited to offer activity camp favorites in baking, break out boxes (similar to escape room puzzles), candy making, cheer, dance, and show choir. Back from last year is a popular S.T.E.M. camp which provides a week of fun activities designed to teach concepts in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  

As with all of our camps, kids will have fun while learning skills, games, techniques and concepts specific to each sport and activity.  We would like to invite your grade school-aged children and their friends to experience one of those camps first hand. Please visit our website to check out what programs are offered this summer and to register online.
