St. Paul School families are expected to assist in school activities in an effort to help reduce operating costs and/or provide enrichment opportunities for students. A minimum of 30 hours per year is required for each family with children in grades Transitional Kindergarten-8th.

Families may purchase requested items from our wish lists for the classrooms, school events, and office in lieu of volunteering. Please check with the front office prior to purchasing items for the classroom or school. Purchases will be credited as follows and must be accompanied by the original receipt to qualify: Families will receive 1 hour of service for every $25 spent. Please bring original receipts to the school office within a week of purchase to be recorded.

All service hours must be completed and recorded by May (see your contract for date) of the current school year. Any hours completed after that date will count for the following school year. Families who do not complete their hours by this contractual date of the current school year will be assessed a fee of $25.00 an hour for each hour not worked and will be billed on FACTS.

All St. Paul School volunteers need the following documents on file in the office:
