Family stewardship

Our Family Stewardship program enhances the learning environment and opportunities for students while helping reduce costs! Since parents are the primary educators of their children, it is important that a cooperative relationship is established between home and school. These opportunities help families get to know each other better, which unites us as a community. 

Our Lady of Lourdes Stewardship Program is essential to the success of our school. This program reduces costs by utilizing parent, grandparent, and parish volunteers. Volunteering also allows parents to have greater participation in their children’s school life and to share in the responsibility of the success of their education.

All parents are obligated to support the efforts of Our Lady of Lourdes School by contributing a minimum of  30 hours of volunteer time per family per year (15  hours for single parents) in various events and service activities. This is a wonderful way to become acquainted with school parents and grow in the spirit of the Our Lady of Lourdes community.
