St. Benedict Catholic School relies on its families to provide a variety of services for the community throughout the course of the school year.
Families of Preschool and Prekindergarten students are expected to contribute a minimum of 20 hours of volunteer time per family. Each family must direct at least 10 hours toward the Wurst Festival.
Families of Grades K-8 students are expected to contribute a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer time per family. Each family must direct 20 hours toward the Wurst Festival. The remaining 20 hours per family can be directed to other fundraising activities, classroom assistance, coaching or other parish volunteer opportunities.
The value of each hour of volunteer time is $30 per hour. Families will be billed for hours that have not been fulfilled. It is the responsibility of each family to regularly report their volunteer hours to the Parent Club through their online management system.
Safe Environment Training: All individuals who volunteer in the school must have an up-to-date background check on file and have participated in the Archdiocese of Seattle’s Safe Environment Training program.
