Parent Volunteer Opportunities At Roncalli

Academic Teams - If your student is part of one of the academic teams (Mock Trial, Spell Bowl, Speech team, etc.) this provides a great opportunity for you to volunteer as a judge at one of the competitions or volunteer to help chaperone at one of the meets. Parents can contact the coach of each academic team or contact RHS Assistant Principal for Student Activities Mrs. Shellie Hartford at shartford@roncalli.org.

Rebel Speech Team - The Roncalli Speech Team's season typically runs from November through February, with meets being held on Saturdays. The speech coaches are always seeking parental volunteers to judge for the speech meet as each participating school is required to provide some specific number of judges. The speech coaches are more than happy to "train" anyone who is interested. They have a packet of information that we can email out to anyone who wants it. Contact information would be RHS English teachers and Speech team coaches Phil Milroy at pmilroy@roncalli.org or Tristan McGill at tmcgill@roncalli.org.

After Prom - The Roncalli Parents Organization sponsors an After Prom for RHS juniors and seniors each year following the Prom. It is open to all RHS juniors and seniors, regardless of whether or not they attend the Prom. This fun-filled event typically runs from 11:00 PM until 2:30 AM and is held at the school. It requires extensive parental volunteers, which can consist of working the actual event and/or assisting in the planning for the event. Interested volunteers should contact the RPO president for more information or the RHS principal's office.
