Every family is required to participate in 25 hours of service during the school year, and an assessment fee of $15 per hour will be billed in May for any hours fewer than 25 completed. We appreciate your participation in the activities of the school as well as your time and talents. A listing of opportunities for service hours are available and may be completed at home, weekends, evenings, and during the school day. Any volunteer hours turned in after May 15th will be allocated for the following school year.
Parents: Diocesan policy requires all volunteers working or in contact with students be fingerprinted through the Livescan process and complete safe environment training, Protecting God’s Children, before contact with students. Fingerprint applications must be renewed every five years.
