Parent volunteer hours:

John Carroll High School requires parent volunteer hours in order to promote engagement with the school community and encourage partnership between the home and school. The school requests that all families complete 10 service hours within the school throughout the course of every school year. Starting this school year, families will receive an update at the end of each school quarter on the status of their hours volunteered. Should a family not be able to complete any of these hours by the end of the school year, a service fee of $300 will be assessed. If a family only partially completes their number of service hours, the service fee will be assessed on a prorated basis. Every $30 donation counts as one hour of volunteering and must be logged in the Family Portal by the family. There is also a parent volunteer hour book for tracking in the front office. If you are doing your hours at school or dropping off items, you must also enter your hours into this book. The hours will be approved and verified by a school administrator.  

What goods can I donate? 

Needs will arise throughout the school year where a SignUpGenius is shared with parents in order to send in various donations. These donations range from cases of water for student retreats to gift cards for teacher appreciation, and so much more.  

How do I log my volunteer hours?
