The purpose of the service hours program is to encourage participation of all families in the school community. All families are required to fulfill and serve for a minimum of 20 hours during the school year. Service hours are administered by the HSA and may be satisfied in a variety of ways. The HSA will be provided a list of creditable service hours by the St. Mary’s School Advisory Board which qualifies for completing service hour’s requirements.
Families not fulfilling their service hour’s program for 20 hours by May 31st will be charged $20 per hour not worked.
