  • Family Service Program

    Elizabeth Seton High School’s Family Service Program is a valuable means of partnering with parents for the benefit of our students. Each person’s gifts and talents add much to our academic programs, our extracurricular activities, our planning, and to the care of our buildings.

    Each family is asked to commit a minimum of 10 hours total to one or more of the volunteer activities sponsored by the Parent Organization, the staff of the school, and the alumnae association. We understand that not all families are in a position to donate their time. We have many opportunities for families to donate in-kind items (i.e., food, beverages, paper products, etc.). One service hour will be given per $10 spent. In August, each family is charged a total of $130.00 for annual dues and parent service hours. This fee is paid along with the other student fees due in August. Parents may earn back the $100 for service hours upon completion of ten (10) services hours within the school year.

    The unprecedented nature of this past school year drastically reduced opportunities for parent service hours. Therefore as returning parents re-registered for school year 2021-2022,  the $100.00 service was not charged. Additionally, parents may use school year 2021-2022 to complete their 10 hours of service (which they may have started in 2020-2021) and thus be reimbursed for the $100.00 service which they paid for school year 2020-2021.

    Procedures for Parent Service Hours
    Prior to performing any service hours, parents should download a Parent Service Hour Record Sheet from Seton’s website. Most events will have online sign-up and sign-in sheets to confirm participation. Chairpersons will also have in-kind donation sheets.

    Upon completion of the service, the parent should have the form signed by the event chairperson that is coordinating the activity. These forms should then be submitted to the main office.

    Chairpersons must submit all sign-in and in-kind sheets to the main office as soon as possible after the event.

    Once the form is submitted to the main office, Sr. Mary Fran, Parent Service Coordinator, will credit your account.

    All service hours should be completed and submitted by June 10, 2022. Hours submitted after this date will be applied to the following school year, only if they are for the Roadrunner Classic Golf Tournament.

    Beginning September 15, reimbursement checks for parents who have completed their 10 mandatory hours of service will be mailed monthly to the parent who owns the FACTS account. Parents should receive checks by the end of the following month.

    *primary parent- if more than one household, please specify if service hour refund checks should be made out to the secondary parent on file.

    If you have questions about the submission of your service hours, please first contact the event chairperson.

    Our school community is very grateful to all our parents for their continued commitment to Seton. Through this program, our parents have done amazing tasks to advance our school.
