St. Peter’s Elementary School is a Catholic School founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1878. Since its foundation, St. Peter’s continues to serve all economic levels of the community providing a rich academic curriculum. St. Peter’s School, located in the Mission District of San Francisco, has an enrollment of 300 students in classes K through eight. About 95% of the students come from Hispanic families. A volunteer will work as an elective co-teacher and campus ministry programs assistant, supporting all elementary teachers by helping prepare and teach the FOSS Science Program as well as serving as the point person for the USF tutoring program. The volunteer will also lend support to administration staff, supervise the schoolyard, do translating if possible, and assist in planning various school activities and assemblies. When the school year is finished, the volunteer will assist with a summer program during the months of June and July. Spanish fluency and the ability to play an instrument are helpful, but not required.
