St. Pat’s depends on its families to support the school in a variety of ways. Our Commitment Hour Program is one of those ways. The program requires each school family to provide a set amount of hours (listed below) for activities in support of the school each year.
A variety of activities are available for families to choose from such as the annual REACH Auction, Scrip Shopping Program, lunch, clubs, field days, special events and coaching a sport to name a few.
In your school entrance packet, you receive a Commitment Form and a description of the large or consistent projects for which you may volunteer. Your name will be distributed to the committee lead to call on you when the event is ready for volunteer assistance. Other commitment opportunities will be presented throughout the year through the Blarney Stone newsletter or your classroom teacher. Unfulfilled commitment hours will be assessed at $20 per hour, as stated in the Enrollment Agreement.
Thank you for committing hours to support the students and faculty at St. Pat’s. Don’t forget to keep track of your hours to turn in by the end of the school year. See the online tracking form to assist with that.
