Volunteer Hours

The Parental Covenant is the cornerstone to Holy Family Catholic School; it is each family’s promise to fulfill certain obligations to the HFCS by sharing of their time and talent through ministry.  HFCS requires families to fulfill 30 hours of work by sharing their time and talent in any and all of our major Development fundraisers:  SUCCESS Annual Campaign, SCRIP, and the Annual Gala Auction.  In addition, we have service opportunities for room parents, event coordinators, teacher’s helpers, recess duty, lunchroom helpers, Hawktoberfest volunteers, and much more!

All HFCS parents and grandparents who volunteer in our various ministries must complete the mandatory Diocese of Boise’s SAFE Environment training and pass a background check; each parent is also responsible for renewing their SAFE Environment certification online annually.  For more information on SAFE Environment click here.


Your opportunity to earn double fundraising hours as a SUCCESS caller is just around the corner!

  • ALL callers, must attend a mandatory one-time training scheduled for Monday, September 23rd, at 8 am in the commons. Please RSVP on the Family Communication Form. Training is expected to last 30-40 minutes. Not sure calling is for you? Come join us and find out!
  • Have you already gone through training and want to get on the schedule? Sign-up sheets to be a caller are available here.
