Each school family is required to volunteer at least 40 hours during the 24/25 school year. Volunteers for the family can be any eligible family member or even a family friend. A big part of the close-knit school community is due to the presence on campus of our families’ parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, older siblings, etc. Without the help of our entire community, the cost of tuition would be much higher as we would have to hire more staff to do things that volunteers can do. In addition, by having volunteers, our students benefit from the interactions with more caring adults. We provide a wide range of volunteer opportunities including things that can be taken home and done in the evenings and on weekends to help those families whose working situations do not allow for volunteer time during school hours. All volunteers are cleared through background checks, Archdiocesan trainings, and requirements.

Fundraising for ECE and K-8
In order to keep tuition rates affordable, there are three major fundraisers in which families are encouraged to participate in. The first one is the Jog-a-Thon is generally held around the end of October. Families are asked to collect pledges. Many families find that they can go beyond this by getting creative. Some post videos on social media with a link to our Square store with their students talking about the annual jog-a-thon and asking for pledges. This allows families to reach out-of-state friends and family to help support this fundraiser. Students also have the opportunity to sign up for weekend Masses. They come in dress uniform with posters, signs and pledge cards and are often very successful in reaching or even exceeding the minimum amount in pledges. Our parishioners are very supportive of our students!
The second major fundraiser is our annual auction dinner. For this fundraiser, families are asked to sell at least fifteen Benefit Raffle Drawing Tickets at a cost of $10 per ticket. For every ticket sold, the family’s name is entered into a drawing for a chance to win $1,500 off the next year’s tuition or 20% of part-time ECE students tuition. Winners of the Benefit Raffle Drawing receive monetary gifts ranging from $100 to $1000.
The third being our school family bingos. We typically have 2-3 a year. We ask that each family bring in an item valued between $15-$20 the correlates with the theme.
