St. Richard Family Volunteer/Service Policy
"The Son of God did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many (MK 10:45).” With these words, our Lord illustrates for us the commitment to serving others that we are called to strive for as His disciples. This commitment to service is one that St. Richard Catholic School tirelessly attempts to instill in all of the students entrusted to us.
It is not just our students who are called to service. Our students' families, especially parents, are also called to serve our school community and volunteer their time in furtherance of our mission. Tuition and fees, although vital to our school’s continued success, are only the starting point for providing a quality, Catholic school education to your children.
In light of this, St. Richard Catholic School is asking each of our families to support our school by volunteering/serving at least 10 hours during the 2017-2018 school year (that’s 10 hours per family, not per student). As we look forward to the 2018-2019 school year, St.Richard will be introducing our comprehensive family volunteer /service program, which requires each family’s participation. Your commitment to volunteering/serving with St. Richard sets a positive example for our children and gives you firsthand involvement in what we can accomplish as a thriving school community working together.
