Faculty and staff are grateful for the time volunteers spend at our school! All school parents/guardians are required to volunteer every school year. Volunteering brings many benefits to the school and parents. It builds and fosters a strong sense of community, reduces costs, and distributes the workload. Parents gain a sense of the learning environment, get to know the students and teachers, and observe the values instilled in the students.

As part of the Volunteer Agreement which each family signs as part of their annual Tuition Contract:

  • Each family is responsible for finding, fulfilling, recording, and tracking their volunteer hours between May 16 to May 15 each year.
  • Each K-8 family commits to volunteer a minimum of 30 hours per year to the school and parish, 8 of which must be dedicated to fundraising at the Fall Festival and/or the Auction, and 3 of which must be dedicated specifically to the parish.
  • Preschool/Pre-K families without older children in the school commit to volunteer a minimum of 15 volunteer hours to the school and parish, 4 of which must be dedicated to the Fall Festival and/or Auction fundraising events, and 1.5 of which must be dedicated specifically to the parish.
  • Under special circumstances, alternate fundraising activities may be approved by contacting the principal.
  • Required volunteer hours for families joining after the beginning of the school year will be prorated.
  • Hours not completed will be billed at a rate of $50.00 for each unfilled hour ($100.00 for each unfulfilled fundraising hour). 
  • Families are required to document their hours on the Volunteer Hours Commitment Summary Form (hard copy and electronic versions available) which is due to the school office by May 15 each year. Third trimester report cards will be held until volunteer hours are reconciled.

All volunteers are required to complete a background check every three years, attend the Archdiocese of Seattle Safe Environment Program class, “Protecting God’s Children,” and complete online Safe Environment refresher training every three years. Please refer to the Parent Links/School Policies section on our school website for information on submitting background checks and registering for a Safe Environment class through the Virtus website.

Most of our annual school events are assigned to the parents in specific grades as noted below. This system allows for parents to plan year-to-year at which events they will need to volunteer. Parents of the assigned grades are responsible for all activities related to their events, examples of duties to be covered are provided below. Hours spent volunteering at the Fall Festival and the Auction count toward fundraising hours.
