Welcome Volunteers!

CKCS believes in partnerships with all of our families, and we view family service and volunteerism not only as active involvement but also as a way to enrich the lives of our children. We greatly encourage the donation of your most valuable resource, your time. Volunteers are an invaluable resource to our school.
 
Part of the requirement when enrolling a student at CKCS is that each family complete and report a minimum of 25 volunteer hours each school year. It is suggested that half of these hours be put toward a fundraising activity such as Sausage Fest or the school auction. There are many other amazing opportunities to volunteer such as, field day, school dances, the middle school drama production, and class parties.
 
If you are unable to fulfill your volunteer hours by the end of June, you will be billed for your volunteer hours at a rate of $40.00 per hour. This payment is not tax deductible, but it does fulfill your volunteer hours contractual obligation.

What is VIRTUS?

VIRTUS is the brand name that identifies best practices programs designed to help prevent wrongdoing and promote rightdoing within religious organizations.
