The BSM Parent Association is committed to creating ways to enhance and enrich the BSM community and support Catholic education. We have a number of community building events planned as well as fundraisers, and they are all volunteer driven. Volunteering is the perfect way to connect or reconnect with fellow BSM parents. If you are interested in learning more about a particular Parent Association event click here.

The Parent Association uses Sign Up Genius (SUG), an on-line tool, for inviting and scheduling our volunteer opportunities. Each semester an email, containing links to the various sign-ups, will be sent to all parents. Throughout the semester, there will be additional opportunities to participate in events that will be communicated via the Knightly News.

Click on the links listed below to see the various volunteer opportunities.  Please sign up today!  Once you've indicated your interest in a particular event, you'll be contacted by the event chair with volunteer options specific to that event. These community building events, that make BSM a great place, are all volunteer driven. This list is continually updated, so check back often.

Thank you in advance for your participation!

Please note:

If you are a new volunteer at Benilde-St. Margaret's, or within the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, we encourage you to attend a Virtus training session. There are some additional requirements for those volunteers who will be interacting with students in a leadership or authoritative role, or in an unsupervised event. These are detailed below.

Requirements for those who work directly with students:

BSM values our strong parent-school partnership and welcomes parent volunteers. As part of our commitment to providing a safe environment for our students, BSM and the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis require all volunteers who work with students to do the following:

  1. Attend a three-hour, "Protecting God's Children" program, commonly referred to as “Virtus session.”*
  2. Authorize and successfully complete a background check.
  3. Complete a Code of Conduct Form. 
Instructions for doing the above are contained in this document: Click here

If you have completed some of these steps in the past as your parish or for a previous school within the last three years, you can just complete this background check sharing form document: Click here

Parents who completed these items more than 3 years ago must complete a recheck of the background check and view an online video “Keeping the Promise Alive.” To access these materials, log into your account here

All parents are asked to review the Code of Conduct prior to volunteering event to ensure you understand the safe environment expectations. 

These three things are part of the Protection of Youth and Children Initiative which has been mandated by the Archdiocese. The reason for this mandate is connected to the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People (click here for the full document) which was written by our United States Catholic bishops. Essentially the Bishops want to do everything they can to create the safest possible environment for our children and youth. Your help in this endeavor is greatly appreciated. Please visit the Archdiocesan Website for more information. If your questions are not addressed there, please contact Dr. Susan Skinner, Senior High Principal. 

*To register for a Virtus training session, go to www.virtus.org. The organization is Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
