The Community Engagement Program is a vital part of TPCS. It's purpose is to set a Christian example of community service and to strengthen the relationships between our families and our school. We thank you for your willingness to serve our teachers and students in this way. We look forward to building community with you.
About Community Engagement
Families with students in grades TK-12 are required to serve 25 hours throughout the school year, regardless of the number of children currently enrolled in TPCS.
Early Childhood families with students enrolled 15 or fewer hours per week are required to serve 5 hours throughout the year. Families with EC students enrolled more than 15 hours per week are required to serve 10 hours throughout the year.
Hours are not transferable between families.
A $250 buy-out option exists for families not wanting or able to serve the 25 service hours. This must be chosen at the beginning of the school year. (EC-only families may opt out for $50 or $100, depending on hours enrolled.) Please contact me if you would like to opt out (originally chosen during enrollment)
Unserved hours will be charged at a rate of $15/hour at the end of the fiscal year. For example, if a family has not chosen to opt out of the program at the beginning of the year and all hours are unserved, a charge of $375 will be placed on the family’s account.
There are a multitude of ways to earn engagement hours throughout the year. To view a list of opportunities, subscribe to the ParentSquare group Community Engagement/Volunteers.
