Parent Volunteer Service Hours

Our Lady of the Assumption School is so much more than classroom academics. Our students are learning through our example that they are part of a greater educational, religious, and social community. Each year, we demonstrate our commitment to this idea through our service to the school.

OLA has dozens of activities from which you can choose to serve. Kids love seeing and knowing that their parents and families are doing something special at the school. We thank you for honoring this commitment and for making Our Lady of the Assumption School and Parish community special.

Please refer to the current School Handbook for more detailed information about required service hours. The following is a partial list of activities that count toward required service hours: Auction, SCRIP, Country Fair, field trips, library, yearbook, PTG Spring social, Snack Shack at home games, Missoula Children's Theater, uniform exchange, grounds and maintenance, art docent, hearing and vision screening, Safe Halloween/Trunk or Treating, and Santa's Breakfast and Secret Shop. If you are not sure if something qualifies for credit, please contact the school office.

Service hours are not transferable from year to year. Hours cannot be earned by purchasing goods such as items or treats for a class party. Similarly, attendance at Mass, social or educational functions do not qualify for credit. But, please count your hours if you organize and setup, host/serve or clean up at OLA school functions.

Recording your service hours: 

Record your hours right away on the tracking areas on the SchoolSpeak Web site: Auction, Country Fair, Parish, and Volunteer. PTG volunteers tabulate hours based on what you submit. The school office is not responsible for tracking your hours.

Tips for completing service hours without stress:

  • Start early! Mark down dates and commitments on your family calendar months before they start. Mark out the entire year.
  • Plan to participate in several things throughout the year so that hours can accumulate steadily.
  • Most importantly, if committee heads do not call you, CALL THEM! Their names are located on the PTG list in the roster and mentioned often in the school bulletin.
  • Keep track of your own hours, and submit them immediately.
  • Family service program from pgs. 43-45 in the school handbook.
