Mother Seton School encourages parents, grandparents, and others to contribute their time, talents, and treasures for the benefit of our students.
Ample volunteer opportunities exist through the school directly and through the Home and School Association (HSA).
All volunteers must complete STAND training from the Archdiocese of Baltimore before they can participate in school activities. Click on the "Child Safety" tab above for more information.

The Parent Ambassaor Program is for parents willing to assist recruitment and marketing efforts. It encourages involvement in Mother Seton School activities, offers assistance to new MSS families, and provides an opportunity to recruit new students to the school.
Our Parent Ambassadors represent MSS in a number of ways and participate in the program through:
· Mass presence and Religious Education outreach
· Mentoring new families and other Parent Ambassadors
· Attending admissions events (tours, open houses)
· Serving as a community liaison for MSS
Please contact Amy Myles, Enrollment Coordinator, at email@example.com.
In addition to the HSA, MSS has a need for volunteers year-round to assist in various school-directed activities. If you are interested in any of the following, please contact Terry Smith at 301-447-3161 unless otherwise noted.
The Archdiocese of Baltimore is committed to providing a safe environment for children and youth. This commitment is expressed in policies for the protection of children and youth. Mother Seton School adheres to these policies, provides staff training, and collects required documentation of all persons who have substantial contact with children enrolled at Mother Seton School.
Parents and others who volunteer at Mother Seton School participate in training / screening with regard to child abuse and protection of children through their local parish or Mother Seton School. This training includes:
Mother Seton School will accept Parish Screening Clearance. If being screened through your parish, a copy of the Volunteer Clearance card must be provided. Criminal History Screening is renewed every five years. Please contact our Front Office (301-447-3161) for more information and to sign up for the necessary training / screening.
Maryland law requires that all educators and other school employees, including volunteers, report suspected child abuse or neglect to the proper authorities in order that children may be protected from harm and the family may be helped. Our school policy requires that all school staff report suspected abuse and neglect to the Department of Social Services, Protective Division, and/or the local police department.
In order to ensure a safe environment for your child, all visitors enter by the front door, report to the school office, and sign in the visitor log book (name and destination) before visiting any other part of the school building.
