Parent Club

Parents provide an invaluable service to our school and we believe they are an important part of our school's success. The Holy Family Catholic School Parent Club unites parents and families together to support the spiritual and educational values of our school. All parents and guardians of registered Holy Family Catholic School students are members of the Parent Club. The Parent Club assists the school in sponsoring activities that further develop our school as a community through family service, fundraising, community support, educational enrichments, and social events. With parent involvement we have the unique opportunity to build and foster a strong community of service and support, in keeping with our Catholic faith, values and ideals.

The Parent Club provides an abundance of volunteer opportunities for parents and families to become more involved in their children’s school life and to fulfill their role as primary educator. Whether they assist in classrooms, lend a hand with fundraising or offer a special skill, parents enrich every aspect of education at Holy Family Catholic School. The Parent Club promotes parent participation and provides revenue from fundraising efforts. As parents of Holy Family Catholic School students we each need to be instrumental in making this school the best it can be for our children. making this school the best it can be for our children. The Parent Club meetings are held every other month during the school year. For more information about the Parent Club please contact Tim Spencer (parentclub@holyfamilyca.org).

Next Parent Club Meeting: February 5, 2020 @ 6:00 PM in the school library.

 

Parent Club Agreement

The overall success of our school depends on the active participation of our families. All parents and guardians of registered Holy Family Catholic School students are members of the Parent Club.

The Parent Club is organized to:

  • Build our Faith Community
  • Support our Fundraiser Events
  • Support all Service Events

The purpose of this agreement is to help parents and guardians of Holy Family Catholic School students understand their involvement requirements for each school year.

Each family is required to fulfill a minimum number of Family Service Points and purchase a minimum amount of Scrip. For the upcoming school year, these requirements must be fulfilled between the following dates:

June 1, 2019 Thru May 31, 2020
* Graduating families must fulfill their requirements by May 1, 2020 in order to receive a clear status for graduation.

Family Service Points
Each family is required to complete a total of 40 points and they can be earned through participation in either fundraising or classroom and school service activities. 30 points must be completed in a fundraising capacity and 10 points from classroom and/or school service opportunities. However, all 40 points can be completed through fundraising if desired.

A minimum for 10 fundraising points must be earned from either the Fall Festival, Crab Feed or the Auction events for each family.

The success of our events is due to the strength of our volunteers and their efforts. Parents/guardians are encouraged to continue to support the school even after fulfilling their required points by volunteering their time and participating in the school's fundraising efforts.

Fundraising points are points assigned to activities which help raise money for our school.Points earned do not always equate to “hours” worked on an event. Points are awarded on the basis of responsibility, hours spent, size of the event or project and the financial impact to the school.

Each family is responsible for reporting their own points upon completion of their assigned activities and no later than 30 days after the event date. When you sign up for a volunteer assignment and a conflict arises, please notify the chairperson as soon as possible. It is your responsibility to find and secure a replacement to fulfill your shift(s) and advise the chair person who your replacement will be. The points associated with your shifts(s) will not be credited if you cannot complete your assignment. Family Service Points are not transferable and will not be carried over to the following school year.

Qualifying Point Activities
To qualify as a Holy Family Catholic School Family Service volunteer points the activity or event has to be directly related to Holy Family Catholic School. We respect that many families are involved in community service, Christian service in our parish and outside organizations. We applaud and encourage your involvement in our parish and community, however those hours cannot be counted toward your Family Service points at Holy Family Catholic School. Some examples of these types of activities are:

  • Parish Liturgical Ministries i.e. altar servers, Eucharistic ministers, mass attendance, etc.
  • Planning meetings prior to Fundraiser
  • Scrip purchases
  • Donations of any kind
  • Boys Scouts and Girl Scouts

Volunteer Requirements
All adult volunteers working with children must complete and pass a HFCS approved background check (LiveScan) and provide a current completion certificate of Safe Haven online training https://sacramento-schools.cmgconnect.org.
