Every family at SHCS is required to earn a minimum of 25 “fundraising hours” also known as Service Hours. Each family has the opportunity to help with the events of their choice. If you choose not to sign up, you will be assigned to the events that are most in need. If you choose not to participate in fundraising, you may pay $1,000 to the SH Alumni.
Each activity has an assigned “hour” value based on relative difficulty (time, responsibility, etc.) of the task. When signing up, you will be asked to sign a name and phone number for every activity summing to at least 25 hours. Once signed up for an activity it becomes your responsibility to find a substitute if you are unable to fulfill your obligation. All event coordinators are responsible for attending the Alumni meeting before and after their event to get any help they may need, to give a final report on the event and take notes to keep on file with the Alumni for future reference.
The Alumni & Supporters includes the entire school family - alumni, parents, teachers, parents of former students, and all supporters of the school. It is with the help of these Service Hours and through this organization that we save and/or raise money to go toward reducing the cost of tuition for EVERY child who attends our school. Without each family’s support, the Alumni & Supporters would not be able to make such a significant contribution to SHCS and enable the school to lower the cost of tuition.
We would like to thank all who have helped make SHCS so successful for over 130 years! Please be generous with your time, talent and treasure as parents, teachers, students, alumni and supporters of this great school. Your children and all the students in SHCS are well worth the effort! Please stay involved and have fun working with other school families. You are welcome and encouraged to attend our Alumni & Supporters meeting held the third Wednesday of each month.
