Saint Thomas the Apostle School
Service Hours

As a statement of principle, the St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School community believes that the primary responsibility of education lies with the parents and/or guardians of children, and that any successful educational program, therefore, depends upon positive and active cooperation and involvement by the parents and guardians with and in the school. Parent involvement presents a positive role model for students. As registered families of St. Thomas, it is expected that families will be involved on a voluntary basis to provide support services, which will benefit the school community and help offset the deficit between tuition collected and the actual cost of operating the school. St. Thomas families are required to:

  • Perform 30 hours of service per year or serve on the Steering Committee of one of major fundraisers.
  • Attend ALL five-parent club meetings.
  • One shift per child at each of our two major fundraisers; Springfest and Auction.
  • Contributing an item for our Auction with at least a $50.00 value or participate in the Auction raffle.
  • Participate in Springfest raffle.
  • Participation in candy, catalogue, or smaller fundraisers as they occur.

Non-participation or failure to complete the required service hours and fundraising commitment will result in alternative terms and conditions for future registrations. It is the responsibility of the parent to record completed service hours.
