At Marin Catholic, parent involvement creates the school community. As partners in education, families are encouraged to participate early and often. Investment of time and talent of MC’s families not only supports the entire school community, but it also adds to each family's experience at Marin Catholic.

Marin Catholic deeply appreciates parent volunteering in any way that is feasible. For current parents, the Volunteer Interest Form is located on the Resource Board. Please note interest in supporting the event and community efforts at Marin Catholic. For more opportunities, or questions, please contact Sandy Starkey, Manager of Community & Alumni Relations at 464-3844 or sstarkey@marincatholic.org.
 

Parent/Family Volunteers

The gift of time and talent is an essential resource for Marin Catholic and makes the school community vibrant. There are many opportunities to lend energy and expertise and there is an expectation that all parents volunteer in some capacity each year. Whether helping with community events and fundraisers, supporting drama or music productions, acting as a team parent, or assisting with Campus Ministry - there is something special for everyone.  For enrolled families, please visit the Resources link in MC Connect to fill out the Volunteer Interest Survey or contact Sandy Starkey at sstarkey@marincatholic.org. 

Parent/Family Volunteer Commitment

As a community, families support Marin Catholic by participating in the life of the community. Every family is expected to donate a minimum of 10 hours of service in an area of interest each school year. The following are areas where volunteers can share their time and talent to benefit the MC community:
  • Serving as a member of a board, such as the MCPA
  • Board, Parent Advisory Board or Board of Regents
  • Volunteering for a community event such as: Mother Son Dance, Father Daughter Dance, Golf Classic, MC Gala, Holiday Shopping Boutique, Christmas Faculty Lunch, Booster’s Crab Feed, Spring Auction and Fashion Show, Senior Dinner, or Safe and Sober Grad Night
  • Acting as an athletic team parent
  • Serving as a snack shack volunteer
  • Assisting in the transportation to games
  • Hosting team dinners
  • Serving as a drama and music performance volunteer
  • Assisting with graphic arts design
  • Acting as at-large community volunteers in Admissions, Campus Ministry, ASC or other offices
  • Donating refreshments for school events ($25 value = 1 service hour), two dozen homemade refreshments or meals = 1 service hour  
Marin Catholic hopes that parents, extended family and friends will see the benefit of partnering in their child’s education, and support one or many of the initiatives listed above. As a school built on integrity and honor, parents are expected to keep track of their own volunteer hours.
