St. Frances Cabrini Catholic School believes that the education of our students is a partnership with our families. We encourage parent involvement through our Family Service Hours. The program is an opportunity for each family to help us accomplish our common goals in providing a solid Catholic education, in a healthy, safe and attractive environment for academic success.
Families are required to give 20 hours toward their Family Service Hours, and an additional 5 hours for the Annual Enchilada Dinner.
Volunteer hours count towards Family Service Hours if the activity directly benefits St. Frances Cabrini Catholic School. Community service to other non-profit organizations, while charitable, does not count toward the St. Frances Cabrini Family Service Hour requirement. Families will find many opportunities to fulfill Family Service Hours in all areas of school life. These will be communicated periodically through email and/or monthly newsletters.
A family may choose to not volunteer their Family Service Hours commitment and instead pay the value of their contractual time. The value of 25 hours work time is $250 or $10.00 per hour. Because Family Service Hours is part of the contractual agreement of the school, this payment is not considered a donation.
If a parent’s business or profession is one that could provide a service to the school, please consider offering the product or giving the service in fulfillment of Family Service Hours. Once your Family Service Hours has been fulfilled for the school year, volunteering these products/services will then become tax-deductible and a receipt for taxes may be obtained from the advancement office.
