There is no greater blessing to a school than the parent who become INVOLVED. This is especially true of SCB where everyone describes our atmosphere as “family”. No matter what your skill or talent, you are needed and most welcomed. As part of your child’s enrollment at St. Charles Borromeo all parents are required to support each category of involvement. While it is crucial that parents be directly involved, adult members of the extended family may serve some part of the requirement.
Failure to meet the PIP requirements will result in an increased cost to register for the following year.
Fall Harvest Festival: 3 hours required
This is our signature event and every family is required to participate in some aspect of the event. At Registration, you indicate your primary area of interest. The Chair of the Fall Harvest Festival will contact you at a later date to confirm your participation. Additional hours are credited after 3 hours of support for the festival.
Service to SCB: 10 hours required
Athletics, CSAC, Room Parents, Yard Duty, and Academic Team Support are a few of the categories of support that fall under Service. See the Parent Involvement Program Contract for further details.
Fundraising: 20 total hours required
Tuition and fees do not cover the total expenses needed to run our outstanding program of faith, knowledge, and service. Our annual budget greatly depends on a successful fundraising program.
Fundraising consists of two main categories: Event Support and Scrip. Earn your hours with a combination of Event support and Scrip purchases.
Events : 10 or 15 hours required, depending on your scrip pledge
Outside of the Fall Harvest Festival, our major fundraising events include the Jog‐a‐thon, Winter Dinner Dance, Womens’ Club Crab Feed, and the Spring Auction Dinner. All parents must commit to supporting at least one of these events. See the PIP Contract for more details.
Scrip: $500 or $1,000 in purchases required
The SCRIP fundraising program raises additional funds for SCB without requiring you to spend extra money out of your pocket.
5 fundraising hours are earned for purchasing $500.00 in Scrip gift cards over the year. Spread out, this is $50.00 each month. Or instead, pay $100.00 at registration to meet this obligation.
10 fundraising hours are earned for purchasing $1,000.00 in Scrip gift cards over the year. Spread out, this is $100.00 each month. Or instead, pay $200.00 at registration to meet this obligation.
Parents who are not on track to complete their service and fundraising commitments by April 15th will be assessed a registration fee of $100.00 per child the following year.
