Family Service Program
September 2020: Our service program requires that each family perform 20 hours of service a year. However, given the particular circumstances this school year, we will not be counting service hours. Many of our activities are postponed or canceled and therefore, there are limited volunteer hours. We highly encourage parents to volunteer and be active in the school community whenever possible. There will be some opportunities to help whether it is during or after school. These events and volunteering positions will be made available throughout the year.
The purpose of the Family Service Program is to expand the participation of parents and families in our school community in the hopes of achieving more successful fundraising and creating more school spirit. We want families to feel a part of and involved in our school community. For the safety and protection of our students, any adult volunteer who has substantial contact with our students must complete a Diocesan background check and attend a four-hour VIRTUS training session on child safety and child abuse prevention. Visit the Volunteering/Virtus link under the PTO menu.
Our service program requires that each family perform 20 hours of service a year. There are plenty of opportunities to help whether it is during or after school. For working parents, please contact the PTO president firstname.lastname@example.org. to see how you can volunteer outside of school. Each family must complete 20 hours of service by the end of the school year. Hours are tracked through SignupGenius’ sent out. If you volunteer, you need to ensure the coordinator of the event records your name and hours volunteered.
- Families who do not complete the 20 hours of service are required to make a payment of $200 or $10 for each hour not completed. We would prefer that families find a way to volunteer in some capacity. The school needs everyone’s support.
