Home & School Association

The Home & School Association, also known as the Parent Group, binds parents, students, and teachers more closely in a formal association.

Parent Volunteering

The mission of our school is to work with the parents in order to educate the students. There are numerous areas and activities where parents may volunteer to help the school. Parent volunteering opportunities exist both during the school day and outside of school hours. It is hoped that each family can find some area or activity to meet this need.


  • With our longstanding commitment in mind, all parishes and archdiocesan Catholic Schools will be using VIRTUS a new compliance management system that will allow all parishes and schools to facilitate compliance with archdiocesan child protection requirements for all volunteers who work with minors, employees, and clergy.

Family Involvement Program - Volunteer Requirements

Service is one of the most important aspects of our Catholic faith.  Bishop Walsh School is proud of its tradition of volunteerism and the outstanding community built around families working together for a common goal.  To this end, we are asking each family to contribute 10 hours of time during the school year in support of school wide activities.
Why do we ask this of you?

The deepest benefit of volunteering is the community that is built when we roll up our sleeves and work together.  We know it when we feel it and our children feel it as well-our support, our participation, and our commitment to the community that is the family we build here.  Assistance in fundraising events provides the money needed to fulfill BW’s education mission.  The proceeds help us to close the tuition gap; that is the difference in the cost to educate and the tuition you pay.
How much time is required?

Each family is required to complete 10 hours of volunteer service via the approved list.  This requirement is regardless of the number of children attending.  Grandparents, other relatives, and friends may also volunteer on behalf of a parent.
Who tracks the service hours?

BW is committed to accurate and fair recording of hours.  Volunteers are required to check in according to the volunteer procedure.  We will be using an app to record volunteer hours.  Failure to check in can result in unrecorded hours.
What if I do not have time?  Can I purchase my hours?

Bishop Walsh School has worked hard to make this program feasible for all family situations.  If volunteering does not work for your family, you may pay for the hours at a rate of $25 per hour.

Archdiocesan Collaborative School

An Archdiocesan Collaborative School (ACS) is a model of shared governance developed by the Archdiocese of Baltimore. The ACS model utilizes a shared governance model that fosters unity through the collaboration of stakeholders in support of Catholic schools. The model allows decisions regarding day-to-day school operations to be made at the local level, while individual schools and school administrators are supported centrally from the Department of Catholic Schools and the Catholic Center's Central Services in areas such as academics, finance, development, enrollment management and marketing.

Positive School Environment

To foster a positive school environment where all students are educated in a safe and caring atmosphere, all Archdiocesan schools will follow established procedures for prevention and intervention for bullying, harassment or intimidation.

Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) has been implemented in every Archdiocesan elementary and high school to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.
