Ways to Help

Parents are expected to support our St. Rose Parent Association and help in our major fundraisers each year.

Twenty-five hours of service are required per year per family, which not only helps to support the many causes and activities at St. Rose School, but also awards a tuition credit for families who complete.  There is a  large variety of volunteer activities parents can do to fulfill this requirement.  Families report their service hours by completing the “Parents’ Service Hours Card” that is sent home once a year.  The Parent Association sponsors two major fundraisers: The Annual Crab Feed and the Walk-A-Thon. Every family is asked to support the important fundraisers.

The proceeds from these events help to keep everyone’s tuition lower.  St. Rose is blessed with many families who happily complete service hours over and above the required 25 hours. Research has shown that students do better in school when their parents are involved. For this reason, we hope all families will choose to complete their service hour requirement. Families who do not complete  their service hours will be charged the tuition credit at the end of the school year.

We are in need of other services as well. Below is a list of some of our needs at St. Rose. Our weekly newsletters will contain a listing of current service hour needs occasionally throughout the year.  It will be school parents’ responsibility to make contact with the person(s) coordinating activities/events to offer their services.

We can’t do it without YOU!
