Parent Teacher Organization
All parents with children at Saint Benedict Catholic School are automatically members of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
While the PTO is known for helping raise funds to benefit the school, the PTO also strives to support and promote quality Catholic education and encourage Catholic standards of family life through family centered events and parent education programs.
Meetings are held at 6pm the third Thursday of each month in the cafeteria.
Parent Involvement Program/Support Hours
With a school of our size, we need every family to volunteer their time and talents. The Parent Involvement Program allows for adequate staffing of PTO sponsored events and other programs that benefit our school while helping to keep tuition costs down. It also helps create a family atmosphere that makes Saint Benedict special.
All school families are required to perform 20 hours of service per year, at least 8 of which must be performed before Christmas. Any parent, legal guardian, grandparent, or immediate family member over 18 years of age may volunteer in fulfillment of this obligation. Families may choose to opt out of 15 of the 20 hours on book day, by paying $500. There is a fee of $40/hour for unfulfilled hours. The fee is assessed January 1 for the hours to be preformed by Christmas and June 15 for the balance.
Service Hours are tracked in RenWeb and each family is responsible for recording the hours they perform in ParentsWeb.
