Commitment to Service

Commitment to Service

St. Christopher School mandatory Commitment to Service requirement for the 2017-2018 school year is 40 hours or $400 in support of school fundraisers. A Reverse Raffle ticket is purchased as part of your tuition and will count toward  your Commitment to Service requirement. Six hours must be given in support of the Parish Feast.

This program asks parents/guardians to make a commitment to share their time, talent and treasure. Your Commitment to Service can be fulfilled by time worked, financial support  or a combination of different activities.

School fundraisers which supplement tuition help us to meet the financial needs of the school and to maintain a tuition as low as possible. It is important to remember that the cost of tuition does not cover the cost to educate a child at St. Christopher's. If this commitment is NOT met the balance MUST be paid before the last week of school. In keeping with our tuition policy we request that any family having difficulty with this obligation contact the Pastor or Principal, Mrs. Anne Lederer.

"TIME AND TALENT"

Listed here are the components of the Time and Talent portion of the Commitment to Service program.

  1. For this school year (2017-2018), hours worked will count at the rate of $10 per hour. All hours worked as a member of a committee or in service at school sponsored events will count as part of a family's commitment to service. The hours worked will be verified by the chairperson of the event of the class coordinator and given to Mrs. Riley, the Administrative Assistant, who will keep a record of them. These events are those listed in the School Calendar and any event added during the school year.

  2. Parents/guardians who volunteer as class coordinators  will be granted 10 hours  for their yearly service.

  3. Parents/guardians who offer their services to the school in any other capacity must have this service verified by the School Administration.

4. Service to your Parish is also considered to be part of your Commitment of Service          obligation.

5. All volunteers must be Virtus trained.
