Our Care & Share program gives parents the opportunity to assist our school community in providing a quality Catholic education to our students. Each year families give 30 hours of their time and talent to our school community. Only 15 hours are given by single parent families. If your family chooses not to donate the minimum service hours, a $20 fee is charged for each hour not completed.
The Care & Share program year starts on May 1 and ends on April 30. No hours can be carried over to the next year. Those who have been unable to complete their hours may pay the Care & Share fee any time during the school year. Those who are returning next fall will be required to pay any unpaid Care & Share fees at registration. Any families not returning in the fall should pay their fees before the last day of classes.
Up to 10 hours of the total 30 hours (5 hours for those only required to give 15) may come from time donated in service to the parish. Parish activities eligible for the C&S program are: religious education teacher, serving drinks at the parish picnic, elected membership on the parish council, liturgy board, finance committee, and property committee. No other parish activities may be counted toward C&S hours unless approved by the principal. Any member of your family may do volunteer work toward the service requirement. Please make sure that the hours are recorded under your Family name in order to get the credit.
Further information, instructions on keeping record of your family's hours and a list of eligible activities is distributed at the start of each school year. Further questions should be directed to the school office.
