- to promote school growth
- to create community
The number of hours required by each family shall be 25 from July to June of each new school year. Single parent families are required to complete 12 hours. Families will be charge $20 for each hour not served. One hour of service will be given per family for each general PTG and Booster Club meeting attended.

Any person who is part of the family of a child in this school may participate in the Family Hours Program. This includes mothers, fathers, step-parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, in-laws, cousins, brothers, or sisters. All participants must be 18 years of age or older.
Record keeping of hours shall be the duty of the Volunteer Hours Chairperson. The responsibility of reporting hours will be the responsibility of each family. Be sure to turn in your volunteer slips after each activity with the signature of the activity coordinator.
A contract must be signed stating how the hours obligation will be fulfilled.
Every Thursday, the weekly bulletin and pertinent information are sent home either electronically or with the oldest child in the family.
