Parent Involvement Program (PIP)
Each family is required to donate 40 hours of service each year (Single parent households may petition the Moms and Dads Club to work 20 hours), at least 20 hours of which (or 10 hours for single parent households) must be toward the Polish Country Fair and at least 10 hours of which (or 5 hours for single parent households) must be toward the Annual Auction.
The remaining 10 hours (or 5 hours for single parent households) may be completed thru various volunteer opportunities throughout the year (typically communicated via email or major event notification). Participating family members must be non-students, 18 years or older.
All students (freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors) must work 10 hours at the Polish Country Fair. The fee for any uncompleted student hours is $25 per hour. The fee for any uncompleted parent hours is $50 per hour. The penalty for a missed, scheduled shift without prior communication will be $100 per hour for parents or $50 per hour for students.
Since this program is a requirement, parents will be asked to sign the attached Parent Involvement Program contract at the beginning of each school year. At that time, families will be required to purchase $250.00 in Polish Country Fair raffle tickets, which may then be kept or sold by the family. The payment deadline is printed on the contract.
Please make check payable to the St. Mary’s Moms and Dads Club. St. Mary’s will withhold the final report card and transcript of any student who does not meet the club requirements for a given year. In the case of extenuating circumstances, a family may petition the Moms and Dads Club for an adjustment of the requirements.
ALL ST. MARY’S FAMILIES MUST SELF REGISTER INTO THE SYSTEM.
