About Parent Hours

Why volunteer with the SGPO?
The St. Gabriel Parent Organization provides an annual subsidy to the school's operating budget to help offset the cost of tuition. SGPO raises these funds through numerous fundraisers. In addition, SGPO sponsors social events throughout the school year. Volunteering at these fundraisers and events is a great way to earn parent hours.

Questions about your current Parent Hours?

Traffic Volunteers Needed!
Help needed with traffic in the following areas. Email Janet to volunteer.

  1. Cones on Ulloa St. & 40th Avenue. This is an easy 15 minutes a day toward parent hours! We need someone to put out cones at the driveway on Ulloa St. at 40th Ave. in the afternoons. This is best for someone who is at school most afternoons.
  2. Morning Traffic: Help with pedestrians and traffic at the corners of 41st & Ulloa and 40th & Ulloa. Any mornings.
  3. Afternoon Traffic: This is our area of greatest need.
    What do afternoon traffic monitors do?
    • Help with the flow of the pick-up line on 41st Avenue.
    • Help parked cars leave through the pick-up line.
    • Help children find their ride.*
    • Help parents, grandparents and others find children they are picking up.

*Children, especially in the younger grades, often rely on the traffic monitors to help find their rides. Without additional help, we will continue to have afternoons where there is no one there to help them.

Let us know by filling out the form below and send in the paper form to the clinic.
Please check the area(s) you would like to help with.
