Our “Service in Kind” policy offers each family the opportunity to volunteer it’s time to help with third source funding activities. Service hours that help the school and staff meet student needs are an important component of this third source funding policy. Each family is required to complete a minimum of 20 fundraising service hours. These hours actually make or save our school money. Each family can elect to buy out of their 20 hour service commitment at the rate of $30.00 per hour. This fee must be paid prior to the end of the current school year.
Every chairperson of school fundraisers is required to keep track of all their volunteers’ hours and turn them in to the school office. Reports will be sent to each school family in early February and mid-to-late May, detailing their service hours. Unfulfilled service hour commitments will be billed to school families at the rate of $30.00 per hour before school is finished for the year. Grade reports will be held until their service hour commitment is fulfilled. Parents are responsible for overseeing a chairperson’s submission and accuracy for the hours they volunteered. The service hour year follows the school year.
The application of this policy is under the discretion of the school administrator.
PACKER BOOTH & PORTABLE-Packer Season
Fulfill your service hours by volunteering to work a Packer home game at the SJB Booster Club’s booth & portable by serving beverages to fans in Lambeau Field. While working side by side with others from St. John’s, you will be a part of this season’s football excitement. This is the school’s 2nd largest fundraiser. Thousands of dollars are made each season from the booth & portable to support many different facets of SJB school. Money raised goes towards physical education, music, Spanish, band, prayer group, athletics and much more. Providing a physical education as part of the everyday school curriculum is the Booster Club’s first and foremost objective. All school families are asked to volunteer. Families with a child participating in SJB extracurricular sport programs are responsible for working a minimum of (1) Packer game or a monetary buyout is available as an additional fee beyond the registration fee.
