2023 – 2024 Parent Participation Requirements

Family Fundraising Obligation (FFO)

Each family is required to raise or contribute $600 annually.  This obligation can be met through participation in designated PTO fundraisers, direct payments, or a combination of both.  The 2023 – 2024 family fundraising obligation must be fulfilled by April 26, 2024. Balances not paid by May 10, 2024, will incur a $50 late fee.  

School Improvement Drive

Participation in this drive is required with a minimum gift of $300. Families who are able are asked to contribute more. This gift can be paid in several monthly payments in FACTS or in one payment by September 15, 2023. All funds are earmarked for a special student-related construction project to improve our students' experience at Our Lady of Grace School.

Virtus Training

Every parent/guardian must complete a Safeguard the Children (Virtus) training class before volunteering in any capacity on campus. 

Volunteer Hours

Each family is required to complete 30 volunteer service hours during the school year to be completed by April 26, 2024. Unfulfilled volunteer hours are billable at $25 per hour.  Twelve (12) of the 30 hours must be volunteered during the October school/parish carnival.   Unfulfilled carnival hours are billable at $100 per hour.  Parents may perform service hours at Our Lady of Grace Parish to a maximum of 15 reported service hours provided that those hours are completed such that a parish staff member can verify those hours. Parents must complete Virtus training before volunteering at the carnival or any other school activity.  There will be no reduction of volunteer hour obligations if there is no valid Virtus certificate on file for a family. Parents and guardians are financially responsible for all unfulfilled volunteer hours. Balances due on incomplete parent volunteer hours must be paid in full by May 10, 2024, to avoid a late fee of $50.

Families are offered the convenience of online credit and debit card payment processing for non-tuition payments. These payments will carry a 3.5% service fee, which is subject to change without notice.
