In an effort to improve our fundraising obligations and the educational enrichment programs offered to the children of St. Michael Catholic School, the Fair Share Hours Policy was designed to evenly share volunteer responsibilities throughout all registered families. The program will allow for adequate staffing of PTO sponsored events and other scholastic programs that help benefit our school, thus helping to keep our tuition costs lower. It also helps us maintain our "family atmosphere" that makes our school so special. As a result, mandatory service hours required of all registered families.
The number of service hours required by all registered families at St. Michael Catholic School is a minimum of 7 hours per quarter (a total of 28 hours per academic year). Any parent, legal guardian, grandparent, or immediate family member over 18 years of age may fulfill your family's service obligation. If you will be volunteering in any capacity that involves our students, Safe Haven certification through the Diocese of Charleston is required along with background screening information (forms for background screening are available in the school office). Additional information and registration for Safe Haven can be obtained by visiting http://charleston.CMGconnect.org. This is now an online course.
