Our school thrives because we have an involved and active community. The relationships between parents, children, and teachers are central to the success of our school. When we have active parents willing to volunteer, it means we have a healthy school. These parent contributions have a direct effect on the classroom by nurturing and supporting our teachers and creating a strong foundation for each classroom.
Parent participation is also key to keeping tuition affordable. Our parent volunteers are our gardeners, plumbers, painters and carpenters. They help with finance and marketing, administrative tasks and fundraising. These tasks are handled with loving support by our families. By seeing parents involved and giving their time, it instills in our children a sense of responsibility and ownership for their school.
Each family, as part of its annual tuition and commitment to the school, is asked to contribute 20 volunteer hours of service to the school. There are plenty of ways to get involved.
