Sharing Your Time and Talent

Holy Family believes that family, school, parish, and community work as one, and we recognize that this spirit of unity is crucial to the success of our school. We invite and welcome all who wish to follow Christ’s examples of love and service by sharing their time and talent with HFCS through volunteering. Here are just a few of the ways you can help:

  • Classroom Assistant
  • Coaching
  • Selling Concessions
  • Lunchroom Aide
  • Parking Lot Attendant
  • Fundraising & Events
  • Office Help
  • Recess Duty
  • Maintenance

We require that all Holy Family volunteers must complete the mandatory Diocese of Boise’s SAFE Environment training and pass a background check. At HFCS, we recognize that our children are our most precious gift, so we take extraordinary measures to keep them safe.

Grandparents Club

The Holy Family Grandparents’ Club enriches and supports our students, faculty, and staff through fellowship activities, volunteer opportunities, and staying connected. Membership is free and open to any grandparent of a current or alums student or a parish friend who wishes to be more involved in the school. Grandparents near or far are invited to join! Membership includes:

Fellowship Activities

Attending school Masses, participating in school events, meeting other school grandparents, and attending Grandparents’ Day in May.

Volunteer Opportunities

Helping in the classroom, serving during the lunch program, coaching sports teams, participating in service projects, assisting with fundraisers, monitoring the parking lot, helping in the classroom, and guest speaking.

Staying Connected

Keep track of all the wonderful happenings at our school through ongoing communications, such as bulletins, news, photos, and videos.

We hope you will join Holy Family’s Grandparents’ Club to share in and enrich your grandchild’s Catholic education.

Guide my hands, oh Lord so that I might use them to your glory. Guide my thoughts, oh Lord that I might speak always with compassion and with love. Guide my feet, oh Lord as I volunteer at Holy Family Catholic School. For it is in serving others that I grow closer to You.


"Volunteering is a shocking force that departs from patterns to carry out something as it has the perseverance to carry something forward. Volunteering is a grace from God, please accept it with strength.”

Pope Francis

Parental Involvement

Parents are the primary educators of their children. HFCS welcomes parent involvement in every aspect of their child(ren)’s education–from volunteers in the classroom to chaperones on field trips, from recess duty to take-home projects. In addition, HFCS works under the philosophy that we are all a big family and need to work together to make our school run. To do this, we encourage parents to be heavily involved in the life of the school.

Parents are encouraged to volunteer for any of our major Development fundraisers:  SUCCESS Annual Campaign, SCRIP, and the Annual Gala Auction. In addition, we have opportunities for room parents, event coordinators, teacher’s helpers, recess duty, lunchroom helpers, Hawktoberfest volunteers, and much more! Volunteering is encouraged at HFCS and required; families must complete 30 hours of volunteer time annually to remain in good standing with HFCS and their Parental Covenant. Again, all HFCS parent volunteers must complete the mandatory Diocese of Boise’s SAFE Environment training and pass a background check.

HFCS parents, grandparents, alums, and fellow parishioners are critical to our student’s growth and success. We encourage our school community to share their time and talents by volunteering.
