Our  Parent Involvement Program (PIP) Philosophy

Corpus Christi Catholic School believes that the education of our students is a partnership with our families.  We encourage parent involvement through our Parent Involvement Program (PIP).  The program is an opportunity for each family to help us accomplish our common goals in providing a solid Catholic education, in a healthy, safe and attractive environment for academic success by giving of their time, talent or treasure.

PIP Guidelines

Each family with a student enrolled at Corpus Christi Catholic School is expected to complete Thirty (30) PIP hours or volunteer hours each year.  Parents and extended family, who are 18 years of age and older, or students in conjunction with their parents may volunteer PIP hours or volunteer hours for the family.  PIP hours or volunteer hours may be completed any time between June 1 and May 31 for a particular school year.  We ask that all PIP or volunteer hours be completed no later than the last week of May each year.  PIP or volunteer hours count if the activity directly benefits Corpus Christi Catholic School.  Community service to other non-profit organizations, while charitable, do not count toward CCCS PIP or volunteer hours.  The school will regularly publicize opportunities for volunteering.

Reporting PIP or Volunteer Hours

When PIP or Volunteer hours are completed, please fill out a family PIP Log and turn in to the school Volunteer Coordinator in the front office.  PIP Logs can be picked up in the front office or downloaded from www.teacherease.com in the digital locker section.  PIP hours should be turned in quarterly and a family report will be sent home with report cards each quarter.

Volunteering for PIP Program

Parents, parishioners, and persons in the community are encouraged to support the school through a variety of volunteer efforts.  Volunteers are needed in many different areas – the school office, library, cafeteria, playground, coaching, and various classrooms.  The volunteer coordinator can be contacted by any parent expressing an interest in volunteering.

Areas of Service

PIP opportunities may include, but are not limited to bulk mail preparation, making phone calls during the Annual Appeal, volunteering to sell SCRIP, serving as a Volunteer receptionist or librarian, running concessions during sporting events, coaching a sport, chaperoning a field trip, dance, or other activity, offering clerical help, aiding in the lunch room, joining the parish Wednesday Warriors task force, helping during open houses, helping in CCCS activities, snowplowing and shoveling, carpentry as needed around campus, etc.

VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS

All volunteers MUST have completed a Diocesan Volunteer Application packet, a background check, signed the Acknowledgment and Affirmation, three reference checks and have had Safe Environment Training prior to any contact with any student or class. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Nichole Munoz at nmunoz@corpuschristicos.org

SAFE ENVIRONMENT

Our school/parish, like all schools/parishes in our diocese, is conscientious in ensuring a safe environment for all who worship, work, volunteer, and learn in our school/church programs.  Anyone who has regular contact with children or young people must attend Safe Environment Training.  This 10 year old mandate is required for all adults 18 years or over who work with children across the entire nation in any ministry or school.  These requirements are directly from Bishop Sheridan for all volunteering with children in our diocese.

Initial Safe Environment Training

The Initial Safe Environment Training is a two hour class that can be done in the classroom or online. If you choose to do online training please contact Nichole Munoz at nmunoz@corpuschristicos.org to gain access to the designated website. There will be training once a month in September, October and November. These classes will be held on weekends from 9:00am-11:00am. The Volunteer Coordinator will publicize all training class. Safe Environment Training is open to all, whether you intend to work with minors or not, and we encourage you to attend. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school
