You like the idea of sending your child to a Catholic middle school for better academics compared to a public-school education. The National Center for Education Statistics found that a higher percentage of eighth graders in private schools scored at the basic, proficient and advanced levels in national tests. Academics, as well as the values taught in private Catholic middle schools, may have you convinced that such a school would be a good fit for your child and your family.
But you may be concerned about the volunteer hours that will be expected of you. Perhaps you and your spouse both work, and you don't have a lot of extra hours to devote to volunteering. What kind of volunteer requirements should you expect from a typical Catholic school?
First, while each school may be different, most expect a set number of hours per child, per school year to help with school activities. This helps keep tuition lower and gives families a feeling of connection to the school. Here are some questions you can ask about alternative ways to fulfill your requirements.
If your schedule or circumstances absolutely prevent you from volunteering, talk to your Catholic middle school administrators and explain your situation. They may be able to come up with other ways for you to help the school.
Hi there, my name is Kirby. Welcome. I am here to talk to you about educational software. I want to help you learn how to teach students using targeted software programs. The programs may share math and language concepts in a way that facilitates quick learning. The programs are usually broken down into sections that allow learners to pick up the concepts quickly and efficiently. I will use this site to talk about the various types of software you can use in an educational environment. I will also talk about ways to help students adapt to using software programs to learn new subjects.
