The Parent Volunteer Program is an integral part of our school, and is designed as a way for parents to be involved in the school community. Our school relies on your talents, service and generosity to benefit our students and our school community as a whole. The PVH commitment is 25 hours per school year, per family. Families may complete their Parent Volunteer Hours in one of the following ways:


Pay $350 to Carden School of Fresno by September 30th of the current school year, OR

Work the $500 worth of volunteer hours and submit the PVH record by April 21st of the current school year.


Pay $500 or any balance of the hours not worked by April 21st of the current school year

It is recognized that some families may not be able to commit to the entire 25 hours. In these cases, families will pay $20 for each hour of the 25 that has not been completed.


Hours may be provided by volunteering for school functions, volunteering as the room parent for your child’s classroom, or volunteering expertise in a certain field that benefits the school. Only school sponsored functions count toward the PVH commitment. Teachers will consult with the Chairperson with opportunities for volunteering. Approved donations will count for up to 10 hours of service. Hours may be earned for the current school year from June 7th through the last day of school June 2nd, 2023.  If the $350 September 30th payment is not made, all PVH HOURS MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE OFFICE BY APRIL 21ST or a $100 processing fee will be imposed.


Hours not completed by April 21st will be billed. The balance of your PVH’s fee is due by May 26th. Arrangements may be made for volunteer hours that will be completed between April 21st and the last day of school. You agree to pay $20.00 per hour for each hour which is not completed. You must record the date you provided the service, a brief description of the service(s), and the length of your service. All hours must be signed off by the Chairperson and/or Supervisor of the event within 30 days of the event or the hours will not count. The PVH sheet is provided to you in your “Welcome Packet.” There will be one sheet per family. Please contact the school office with questions regarding Parent Volunteer hours.
