School - Volunteer - School Teamwork


For over 120 years, the generosity of our loyal volunteers and the generosity of our ancestors has allowed St. Mary of Gostyn to be a welcoming community rich in faith, education, service and community.  When you volunteer at SMG, you directly contribute keeping our tuition costs affordable, and each time you volunteer, you make a difference in our school, our families, our community and the world.   Without you, St. Mary of Gostyn would not survive, and we are extremely grateful you share your time and talents to support SMG.  Your time is a precious gift to us, and we THANK YOU!


DIRECTIONS: St. Mary of Gostyn School offers many volunteer opportunities that help to keep our tuition costs lower than actual costs.  To sign up to volunteer, read the opportunities below and fill out the form at the bottom of this page.  You will be contacted soon after to confirm your request.  Thank you for sharing your time and talent with us!


Helping Hands

The birth of a child, a death in the family, an illness, or a catastrophic event can cause the need for assistance. This group helps school families at this time by making meals, providing babysitting, etc. Contact Julie Romenesko if you need help or to volunteer to help others.

Lunch Supervisors

Parents and relatives are asked to serve as monitors both in the classroom and on the playground during the lunch periods. The monitors volunteer their time. Contact Mary Toth in the School Office (630) 968-6155 if you are interested in helping.

Room Parents

Room Parents primarily assist the teacher by coordinating helpers for field trips, Hot Lunches, and class events, running holiday parties, assisting at Park Day, and calling parents in case of an emergency.


This program designed to offer parents a means to offset the cost of school tuition or to donate their profit to the school, other families, or teachers for school-related expenses. To participate in the program, you purchase certificates through school and use them at local grocery and department stores, gas stations, restaurants, and specialty stores. Click on

Help is always needed and much appreciated by the families we can assist through this fund.
