The fall diaper drive starts this week and goes until next Thu., Oct. 19. We will be collecting diapers to donate to Babies and Beyond. Diapers can be dropped off in the pack-and-play in the front entryway.

Make sure to write your house on the diapers so they can be credited to your house’s total! House points will be given based on diapers collected. The house that collects the most diapers will get desserts sponsored by Guardians for Life!

Sizes newborn, 1, 2, and 3, as well as pull ups, are needed the most, but all sizes are accepted. Open packages, baby wipes and formula are also accepted.

Badger Football Gameday Volunteers


StAmbrose Academy is again going to supply volunteers to be runners of food and beverages in the suites for UW Football games. We started this volunteer opportunity four years ago in which SAA benefited by over $12,000. Everyone that had a chance to volunteer since 2019 enjoyed the time they spent volunteering as they were able to meet other SAA families and serve the spectators in the air conditioned/heated suites. “Watching a few plays while serving and being part of the excitement as the fans cheered”, was a comment that the volunteers had after leaving Camp Randall. These volunteer hours will count towards the required volunteer hours required for SAA, and you can recruit your friends and neighbors to join the fun.



Take food and beverages to about 300 spectators (You are not taking orders or handling any transactions)

Arrive to Camp Randall 3 1/2 hours before game time

Depart shortly after the 4th quarter starts. (You can stay and watch the 4th quarter if you want)

Free meal from the concessions stand

This is a required school-day activity for all of the students – please do not opt out unless it is a previously planned absence. Please complete the following form to give your student(s) permission to be taken off campus in the vehicle of a SAA staff member or parent.
