An important part of the education we provide to our students is teaching them to be of service to others. As a member of the St. Charles community, volunteering embodies that giving spirit and models for our students what we hope they will do throughout their life as servants of Christ.
The gift of volunteering helps offset the costs of things that would otherwise come out of our budget. Thousands of dollars are saved every year by the thousands of hours our volunteers donate to St. Charles.
All St. Charles families are asked and expected to complete annual volunteer hours.
Preschool families: 10 hours
K- 8 families: 25 hours
Single-parent families:15 hours
We post volunteer opportunities and requests in the weekly school newsletter, Sign-Up Genius and the St. Charles volunteer community on BAND The APP. Thank you for your volunteer support!
Volunteer Program Guidelines:
Hours for the school year are accumulated July 1- the last day of school
Hours must be submitted to the school BEFORE June 15.
Please submit hours after volunteering is completed.
Submitted hours must come from a St. Charles event- any volunteering done that does not impact St. Charles does not count.
Extra hours do not flow over to the following year.
Late night/clean up crews get double hours.
It is up to each family to submit the hours.
Gift card donations must be a minimum of $20; you'll get 1 volunteer hour for every $20 denomination. This is in addition to the required Gala auction donation.(see below)
Volunteer hours not completed will be invoiced through FACTS at a rate of $20 per unfulfilled hour after the school year in the month of July.
