PIP - Parent Involvement Program

St. Patrick’s School thrives because of the balance of school support and parent involvement. Our Parent Involvement Point (PIP) system allows for a reduction in tuition for minimum hours completed. It is also a great way to get involved while meeting and making great friends.

St. Patrick School relies heavily on volunteers to make special events and activities happen each year. These special activities not only enrich our children’s educational experience, but foster a sense of connectedness among members of our school community. Parents and caregivers are the primary educators of their children, and children learn by example. When our kids see us giving our time to a good cause, they learn to do the same. We hope they carry these lessons of mutual responsibility and generosity with them beyond St. Patrick School and into adulthood. Another unique benefit of Catholic education!

Remember to TRACK your PIP service hours and return the form to the office. You can download the PIP Tracking Form here.
