VOLUNTEERING AT SACRED HEART:
Every family is required to volunteer at least 21 shifts per school year. If you are a tutor at Sacred Heart, this fulfills your volunteer requirements. For the tutorials to succeed, it is imperative for each family to understand that their involvement both on-site and at home is vital. Therefore, each family must come into the tutorials with an understanding that they may have to tutor at some point. If, for the current year you are not a tutor, then your responsibilities will be to sign up for approximately 21 shifts of study hall monitoring, which will include the responsibilities listed below.
STUDY HALL MONITOR:
Study hall hours are divided into two shifts. The first shift is from 9:00-12:35 the second shift is from 12:00- approximately 3:30. You should arrive on time and not leave until your shift is over and, if you are an afternoon volunteer, until cleaning is complete. In the rare instance when an emergency arises, you must advise a board member that you need to leave early.
You are welcome to bring your younger children with you, if they can maintain a peaceful atmosphere in study hall. Once your hours have been scheduled, if you find that you are unable to keep a shift, you must find another study hall monitor that is willing to trade shifts with you. Then, you must let our Study Hall Coordinator know of the change. The upstairs study hall will be monitored by the person at the front desk and is for silent work only.
- As AM study hall monitor - it is your responsibility to maintain order and encourage students to study during their study hall period. Students should come in ready to study and make sure to bring work to do during study hall. During the set lunch time, from 11:55 until 12:35, you will be responsible for helping to keep order while the students eat. This will require watching the students who have gone outside to eat and for recess.
- As PM study hall monitor – just as is asked of the AM monitor, you will be required to maintain order and encourage students to study. Again, students are to be working on school assignments or playing peacefully. You are asked to arrive no later than 12:00 to ensure the smooth transition between monitors. This will require watching the students who have gone outside to eat and for recess.
When you register, you will have the opportunity to choose your volunteer hours. Bring your calendar for the school year, so you have the best chance of getting hours convenient to you. At the end of June, we will assign each family who has not signed up yet for hours. If you haven’t signed up, you will be responsible for filling the hours assigned you. Please remember the success of Sacred Heart Tutorials is dependent upon all our cooperation. All our involvement is essential for our success.
CLEAN UP CREW:
All families are to sign up to clean up 6 times throughout the school year. At the end of the day we need to leave the building in the same or better condition than when we found it! Cleaning up will include, but will not be limited to the following: emptying the classroom trash cans, picking up debris on the floor, sweeping, vacuuming, cleaning dirty dishes in the sink if they were left there inadvertently, wiping the tables down in the cafeteria, wiping the counters down in the kitchen, gathering all items left and putting them away in the lost and found area, putting away any tables or chairs that were taken out during the day, etc.
