Parent Volunteers

The function of the Parent Volunteer Program is two-fold. The primary purpose of the service hour program is to lower costs by staffing school sponsored events with volunteers. The second is to encourage the involvement of parents in their child's education both inside and outside the classroom.

All families are required to donate 10 hours of service to the school at school sponsored events. Service hours for the school year began on May 2016 and will end on May 2017. The ten hours of service must be completed by May 8th, or the parent/guardian will be assessed $30.00 for each hour not served. Volunteer hours completed after May 8th will count for the following school year. Additional hours do not carry over from one year to the next.

Parent Volunteer Program hours are separate from Student Service Hours. Parent hours are for school sponsored events. Parents do not earn Parent Volunteer Hours for volunteering with outside organizations, unless they are part of a school sponsored activity. For more about Parent Volunteer Hours and opportunities, go to Parent Volunteer Brochure. Please contact the Advancement office for any questions.

Monthly updates for volunteer opportunities can be found in the monthly McNews.

Parents can look up there hours summary by logging into the Parent Maccess Portal and selecting Parent Service Hours.

Participate in Fundraising Efforts

The BMHS Parents club raises funds to support scholarships and educational programs at BMHS. The funds raised help maintain a quality education for our children. Consider joining a committee or helping with some of the fundraisers like, Redskins Concession or fundraisers organized by the Advancement Office, such as the Golf Tournament.

The Redskins Concession Stand is the only fundraiser that the Parents’ Club uses. If there are enough volunteers for this concession we do not have to run a raffle, sell sweets or wrapping paper.
