One of the things that makes our school great is the spirit of volunteerism among our parents.  When you give an hour of your time, you make the school a richer place for your children and their classmates.  You also get to see your children "in action" and learn more about how they spend their day.

When you volunteer, you also build relationships with the other parents. This is important for creating a vibrant, supportive community.  Plus, helping out with a dance or a social event is just plain fun!

Please see our Volunteer Opportunities catalog (below) for descriptions of the dozens of ways you can become involved. Whether you are available during the school day, or just on the weekends, there is a spot available for you!

Please click here to volunteer through Sogn Up Genius or send an e-mail to Wendy Horan ( or Katie Sivak ( to sign up now!
