Service Hour Policy
Volunteers are vital resources for St. Thomas More School
and help make it a vibrant, caring, state-of-the-art learning facility for ALL of our students, preschool through 8th grade. Volunteer opportunities can be found on Sign-Up Genius throughout the year for various activities. Our Development Office maintains responsibility for major fundraising efforts (i.e. Annual Fund Drive, Corporate Sponsorships, events, etc.) that provide revenue for technology, student enrichment and curriculum enhancement, as well as help minimize tuition cost increases and are always in need of volunteers. Volunteers also staff a variety of school duties such as the cafeteria during lunch hours, in addition to programs that offer opportunities for families to reduce their personal tuition obligations through the Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP). The bottom line is: Volunteers help to keep costs down and, thus, tuition and fees down. There are many ways to get involved at St. Thomas More School through our many Development efforts, committees and regular school activities; the opportunities are endless. All families are required to work a minimum of 20 service hours through fundraisers or specific school activities or pay a $10 per hour fee.
