St. Ann School Volunteer Philosophy & Point System

Thank you for your commitment to and support of St. Ann School! 

Family engagement is one of the cornerstones of the St. Ann School experience. Through the contributions of time, talent and treasures, families add richness to students' academic life. The Home & School Association seeks to foster family engagement by identifying a variety of volunteer opportunities for supporting the academic, social and spiritual aspects of our children's educational experience. It is our goal to support family engagement by identifying volunteer opportunities that leverage the vast array of skills, expertise and interests of families while fitting into the realities of school and non-school obligations. 

A rich variety of volunteer opportunities that focus on student enrichment, school/classroom enrichment, family/community enrichment and fundraising are available. A full description of those opportunities is included below.

Each family is asked to commit to earning 10 volunteer points through the course of the year (Sept. - Aug.). Each volunteer opportunity has been assigned a point value. Eight (8) of the volunteer points will come from work done on pre-determined Home & School committees (list and descriptions below). The remaining two (2) points will come from doing two (2) lunch/recess duties with each lunch/recess duty being worth 1 point. In addition, each family is asked to volunteer in some capacity for one of the two major fundraising events – Spaghetti Dinner or a New, adult-only event.

Buy-out of volunteer points can be done at a rate of $25/point and can be done in total or in part. Extra points earned (above 10) do not get carried over to the next year - but DO earn you extra kudos AND more valuable time invested in your kids' educational experience! 

Note: Special requests for volunteer work that supports the St. Ann School community in one of the areas identified above can be submitted for approval and point assessment to the Home & School Executive Committee. Regardless of how the eight (8) committee points are earned, however, all families are asked to fulfill the two (2) lunch duties and volunteer at at least one of the two fundraising event (description follows).
