The Parent Participation Program at St. Catherine’s is an important and fundamental aspect of our school. It assists in keeping operational and tuition costs down, and enhances the educational objectives, achievements, and experiences for our students. The Parent Participation Program is task-based, giving parents the opportunity to choose a task group that best fits their skills, interests, talents and time.
Parent participation is not optional, it is a commitment required of all registered families.
Frequently Asked Questions regarding our Parent Participation Program
Direction is given regarding jobs that need completing by the task group coordinator. It is expected that approximately 80% of hours will be completed within your assigned task group. The other 20% can be fulfilled by tasks such as driving on field trips.
Students 16 years or older who are accompanied by a parent/guardian, may assist with hours with the exception of the Fall Fundraiser evening. Young people under the age of 19 cannot be present during the Fall Fundraiser due to liquor licensing regulations.
