Home and School Association
St. Maria Goretti Catholic School has a wonderful group of parents and faculty that comprise the school's Home and School Association. The Association has representatives that serve on a Board that organizes events, fundraising, volunteer opportunities, and special programs and purchases for the school.
The Home and School Board hosts many activities throughout the school year to bring our school community closer and celebrate our faith. Due to COVID-19, these events are on hold for now. We will update this page with more details if we are able to accommodate these events in a different way.

SMG is blessed to be able to provide so many wonderful opportunities to our students through the support of our volunteers.

Please note our volunteer requirements if you are new to SMG and would like to sign up to help with School events.
Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities
