The business office has sent each family (through your child) a mid-year check-in letter stating the Service Hours and Fundraising Hours we have recorded as of January 17, 2024. All hours must be recorded on Service Hour Form and sent to the main office. Any volunteer hours for Jogathon, Halloween Carnival, Coaching, Recess Duty, Library Help, Field Trips and such must be recorded. Our staff in the main office will only record what YOU submit.  Each family has committed to 30 Service Hours and $500 in Fundraising by April 30, 2024. Families will be invoiced May 1, 2024 for hours and fundraising not completed. Any hours served AFTER April 30th can be used towards next year’s commitment. There are still many ways to get your hours served and fundraising completed with the auction coming up.

From the Parish: All of our families who receive in-parish tuition rate have received a Stewardship letter from Father Scott clarifying his expectation of those families who have stated that they are practicing Catholics at one of our Rainbow parishes. Any questions about registration, mass attendance and tithing should be made directly with the respective parish secretaries.  They are the people in consultation with Fr. Scott who sign off on in-parish status.
