Because the issue of service hours is so crucial to the future existence of this school, the St. Clare School Commission and Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) have designed a Parent/Guardian Service Hours Program that will require parents and guardians to contribute their time (determined by a set number of service hours) each year.Each household (parent/guardian) will be required to provide a minimum of twenty (20) mandatory service hours, with a minimum of fifteen (15) of these hours toward Book Sale and/or Auction . For each service hour not fulfilled within this time period, there will be a charge of $25 per unfulfilled hour (made payable to St. Clare PTO). Report cards will be held until the fee is paid.
Opt Out Option
Volunteers are the key to making all of our programs possible. We encourage all parents to get involved in school programs and help your children learn the importance of volunteering in a community. However, we understand that it can be challenging for some families to find a convenient time to volunteer. You may OPT OUT of volunteer hours by sending in a check with the PTO volunteer sheet at the beginning of the school year. Checks for $500.00 should be made payable to St. Clare PTO. If you decide to volunteer later in the year, we would love to have you do so at your own expense (no refunds).
