St. Thomas Aquinas Parent Participation Program
The STA Participation Program was developed to assist in fundraising activities or to provide cost saving services for the school in return for a reduction of the participation fee.
There are four main areas where participation credits are available:
- School Maintenance: (Indoor and outdoor)
- Traffic Supervision
- Seasonal / Partial: These events include Walk-a-thon, Christmas Craft Fair, semi-annual yard clean-ups, International Night and other fundraising events.
There are a limited number of full time participation positions. Only those able to commit the required time should apply for a full credit participation position.
Seasonal and part time credits are available throughout the school year. Parents should watch for notice of seasonal opportunities that come by email or are printed in the school newsletter.
Starting in the 2012/2013 school year, the number of hours required per family has been reduced by 25%. For a full credit position, a family is required to work 60 hours/year for one student or 90 hours/year for 2 or more students.
Participation begins September 1st and ends June 30th. (except for School Maintenance which is required throughout the summer and for some coordinator positions).
There are some services that do not earn credits, like driving or chaperoning students, judging science fair, baking or cooking, attending parent association meetings or help at graduation events.
