Share Hours help to keep tuition costs low by allowing parents to perform volunteer tasks within the school. Share Hours must be completed by a parent or guardian. Volunteer hours completed by anyone other than a parent or guardian cannot be counted as share hours as they are considered taxable income according to IRS Code Section 117(d). Other family members who have completed an Archdiocese background check and Safe Environment Training are welcome to volunteer, however these hours cannot count toward the family’s Share Hour commitment.
Each family is required to donate a minimum of 35 hours per school year in service to the school, with at least 15 hours going toward the Auction. Single parent families are required to give 17.5 hours of service, with at least 7.5 hours toward the Auction.
Parents are responsible for documenting their volunteer hours and submitting them to the school office monthly.
If you are looking for Share Hours opportunities, contact the Principal, Lesley Lindell. St. Matthew Catholic School is so appreciative of our community who give of their time and talents to benefit the school. We would love to find a way to utilize your God-given gifts, so don't hesitate to ask!
