  • As a Catholic school, we encourage all parents and guardians to become part of our MCPS community through a spirit of volunteerism. There are a plethora of opportunities throughout the year for families to actively participate in the school’s mission and life.

    All families are expected to give 40 service hours to the school. You are to log this time on PowerSchool by logging into your PowerSchool parent portal account.  The navigation menu is on the left side of the screen in PowerSchool.  The Parent Volunteer Form link is at the bottom of the navigation menu.  Click on the link and enter the name of the volunteer, the date of the event, the type of event (concession stand, field trip chaperone, etc), and finally enter the number of hours or if less than an hour, the number of minutes volunteered.

    We, as a school, have prospered over the years because of the many hours of volunteer service our families have committed toward our growth. With your family's support, Montgomery Catholic will continue to grow and flourish. 

    We appreciate your time and look forward to seeing you soon! Thank you for your service!
