ST. LOUIS CATHOLIC SCHOOL VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT AND REQUIREMENTS POLICY 2019-2020
Since St. Louis Catholic School is a parochial school, we receive no government funding. Therefore, our parents are essential in running many of the day-to-day activities as volunteers. Each St. Louis Catholic School family, ELC-8th grade, is required to serve a minimum of 20 volunteer hours per school year. There are many ways for every parent or guardian to get involved regardless of their prior experience and concerns about time commitments. Hours may include all work within our parish community (St. Louis Catholic Church, Early Learning Center, St. Louis Catholic School, Religious Education, Children’s Ministries, Youth Ministries, Music Ministry, etc.).
PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO REVIEW THE VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT FORM. VOLUNTEER DESCRIPTIONS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.
