All VOLUNTEERS at St. Anthony of Padua School who will come in contact with students need to be VIRTUS trained. This includes classroom volunteers, coaches, and parents attending field trips. I’m excited to announce that volunteers can now take their VIRTUS class online. We will also be hosting a class on September 10th at 6:00 pm for anyone who would prefer to take the class in person.
For the online class, begin the registration process and after you create a user ID, you will be asked to select a location and “online” will appear as an option on the list.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school office with questions. When signing up, please indicate that you will be volunteering at St. Anthony of Padua School. If you have previously taken a VIRTUS course, you do NOT need to take it again to volunteer for the upcoming school year.

One student per class was recognized for demonstrating the Virtue of the Month, Generosity, throughout the month of December. Responsibility is giving of oneself in a willing and cheerful manner for the good of others
GENEROSITY LOOKS LIKE
- Spending time with someone else
- Thinking of others first
- Sharing with someone
- Bringing food to the poor
GENEROSITY SOUNDS LIKE
- Would you like to play with me?
- I will push you on the swing first.
- Would you like this?
- I gave food to the poor.
Thank you to all of our students who went out of their way to give to someone else throughout the month of December! There were several 8th-grade students recognized for their work with their ministry: HQGR; a drop-in center for teens in Grand Rapids.
