The overall success of our school depends on the active participation of our families. All parents and guardians of registered Holy Family Catholic School students are members of the Parent Club.
The Parent Club is organized to:
The purpose of this agreement is to help parents and guardians of Holy Family Catholic School students understand their involvement requirements for each school year.
Each family is required to fulfill a minimum number of Family Service Points and purchase a minimum amount of Scrip. For the upcoming school year, these requirements must be fulfilled between the following dates:
*Graduating families must fulfill their requirements by May 15, 2017 in order to receive a clear status for graduation.
Each family is required to complete a total of 40 points and they can be earned through participation in either fundraising or classroom and school service activities. 25 points must be completed in a fundraising capacity and 15 points from classroom and/or school service opportunities. However, all 40 points can be completed through fundraising if desired.
A minimum for 5 fundraising points must be earned from either the Crab Feed or the Auction events for each family.
The success of our events is due to the strength of our volunteers and their efforts. Parents/guardians are encouraged to continue to support the school even after fulfilling their required points by volunteering their time and participating in the school's fundraising efforts.
Fundraising points are points assigned to activities which help raise money for our school.Points earned do not always equate to “hours” worked on an event. Points are awarded on the basis of responsibility, hours spent, size of the event or project and the financial impact to the school.
Each family is responsible for reporting their own points upon completion of their assigned activities and no later than 30 days after the event date. When you sign up for a volunteer assignment and a conflict arises, please notify the chairperson as soon as possible. It is your responsibility to find and secure a replacement to fulfill your shift(s) and advise the chair person who your replacement will be. The points associated with your shifts(s) will not be credited if you cannot complete your assignment. Family Service Points are not transferable and will not be carried over to the following school year.
To qualify as a Holy Family Catholic School Family Service volunteer points the activity or event has to be directly related to Holy Family Catholic School. We respect that many families are involved in community service, Christian service in our parish and outside organizations. We applaud and encourage your involvement in our parish and community, however those hours cannot be counted toward your Family Service points at Holy Family Catholic School. Some examples of these types of activities are:
All individuals participating in volunteer activities involving direct contact with students (i.e. coaching, classroom helper, field trip supervision or transportation) must have the following requirements fulfilled:
Scrip is a school fundraising program whereby our school earns money through the sale of gift cards or certificates. Each HFCS family is required to purchase a minimum of $3,000.00 of Scrip by May 31, 2017. A family that has a Scrip balance of zero will be assessed a $350.00 fee to release them from the Scrip program requirement. Family Scrip participation totals are available by logging into your Shop with Scrip account. Please note:
