Participation List 2021-2022
FUNDRAISER & PARTICIPATION CALENDAR 2021-2022
The St. Brigid/Our Lady of Hope Regional School Parents’ Association invites you to get involved in your child’s school.
Come join us to make St. Brigid/Our Lady of Hope the best school possible for your children, have some fun with the families of our school community, and earn tuition credit ($11.25/hour with a per family maximum of 40 hours) towards next year’s tuition. Fundraising efforts reduce tuition costs for everyone. Spend time helping yourself and others by volunteering for the event that fits your schedule. If you have any questions or need help selecting a fundraiser please feel free to contact the event chairperson or the Parents’ Association ([email protected]).
To allow all families to have a chance to participate, please do not volunteer to be the chairperson of more than one event (you can register as a volunteer for as many as you like). If we have unfilled chairperson roles as we move through the year we will recirculate and allow folks to chair an additional event. All volunteers must attend Virtus training and for any events that interact with the children provide proof of vaccination for Covid 19.
