Parent Participation Program
The success of St. Thomas More Catholic School depends on a spirit of cooperation and shared sacrifice of time and talent among parents and school staff for the good of students. There are many opportunities for parent volunteer service to the school or parish, such as helping with class field trips or celebrations, baking for teacher appreciation days, working concessions, coaching teams for the sports club or working at the Parish Bazaar.
Parents of St. Thomas More students are expected to contribute a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer service per year. (Single-parent families, 20 hours per year.) A handbook detailing the Parent Participation Program is available in the school office. This program is not a substitute for weekly tithing, but a support program to minimize dollars needed to support the school.
