Community is a big deal at STCCS. In the Bible we read, "for just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others" (Romans 12: 4-5). We are called to provide quality Christian Education in St. Thomas and it requires all of us to do the best for our children. That's why we work so hard to partner with our parents. It's why we have a Board of Directors made up of parents and community members who are committed to Christ-centered education. It's why we have volunteers who care deeply about our school and want to see it continue to flourish.
In order for volunteerism to thrive at STCCS, it needs to be sustainable. It must work the way our community works. In our strategic plan, we are building sustainability by moving from committees to work groups. Work groups are goal-driven: they accomplish a specific goal in a set amount of time. At STCCS, we don’t believe that volunteering has to lead to burn out and frustration. It can be enjoyable and fulfilling as well as a blessing for our school community.
