SMCMS not only encourages parents to remain active in the lives of their children, the school actually expects it! A unique requirement of 40 hours of volunteer commitment to the school can be fulfilled in a variety of ways, including chaperoning events, helping in the office or lunchroom and even attending meetings and conferences. A $200 fee per family is assessed on the tuition billing and is worked off at a rate of $5.00 per hour of volunteer service. Volunteer needs in specific and/or general areas will be announced in the newsletter or through the bi-weekly envelope information. Activities vary from SMCMS office-centered help, to athletic events, to at-home jobs.
Parents are asked to keep track of their volunteer hours on the parent involvement log found on the FORMS page, which is to be completed and turned in to the office quarterly.
