St. Catherine School requires that each K-8 family provide 40 service hours (20 hours for single parent families) to the school in order to contain the costs while strengthening the sense of school community by involving parents in the life of the school. 5 of the total 40 hours are required to be given to the annual auction.
For the 2020-2021 School Year, we ask that each family contribute 5 volunteer hours between March 1st and the end of the summer.
Recording Volunteer Hours
Each family must track their service hours and report them to the school office by August 31, 2021 (8th grade graduating families, please submit your hours by Friday, May 21st). In the event the service hours are not fulfilled, each family is responsible for the unfulfilled portion of the hours at a rate of $25/hour, which will be charged via FACTS.
Each family will receive a volunteer hours reporting form to complete and return to the school office.
