Fundraising


Fundraising Activities for Share Hours

To ensure the success of the fundraising activities, each family must complete at least 25% (10 hours of the required 40 hours or 5 of the required 20) in a fund raising activity. The PVO determines the fund raising activities for the year during its monthly meetings. Parent participation in the monthly meetings is crucial to the success of the school’s fundraising activities. Volunteers for the various activities are requested throughout the year. Many opportunities that require different skills and different levels of commitment are available. The school’s weekly Principal Newsletter will provide you with a list of upcoming share hour opportunities.
