2009 BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

Family Stewardship Program

Family Stewardship Program - All Saints Catholic SchoolThe All Saints PTO Family Stewardship Program was develop to provide an opportunity for each school family to share their time, talents and treasure with the school.

Each family contributes 25 “shares” each school year, and shares are accumulated as follows:

  • One hour of work on or off campus = 1 share
  • One home­made/baked good = 1 share
  • Merchandise valued at $15 = 1 share (this can be cumulated over multiple events/multiple items)
  • The fee for each uncompleted share is $20/share

Questions regarding the Family Stewardship Program? Please contact Johanna Catts at schoolvolunteers@allsaintsvaschool.org.
