Get Involved

At Mount Carmel School our children actively participate in a year long community outreach program. As parents we also demonstrate that we’re part of a greater educational, religious and social community through our commitment to service to the school.

Children whose parents are actively involved in school do better academically and socially. Children love seeing their parents here during the school day, or knowing that they are contributing their time to the school community. There are many opportunities available; day, night, on or off campus.

All volunteers must complete the online training at Shield the Vulnerable. Once you have completed the training, print your certificate and bring a copy into the office.

Submit your hours weekly by marking the front of your weekly envelope. Remember that you must complete all hours by May 31 of each year. Auction hours (2) and Festival Hours (9) are required as part of your volunteer commitment.

Where to Start

Start with your room parent

Each class sponsors a number of activities each year, and volunteers are always needed. Your room parent coordinates volunteers for these events and needs your help.

Watch the Weekly Announcements e-mail (Wednesdays during school year)

Look for the section at the bottom titled “Contributed Service Hours”. Calls for volunteers are always posted here for a wide variety of jobs to be done.

Our two biggest fundraisers; the Auction and Festival do require hours to be contributed by each family to help make them successful.
