Volunteer Opportunities

The Club welcomes interested parents and community members to inquire about any of our Board positions. Each position could take on someone to ‘shadow’ or co‐lead any time of the year. In addition, the Club is always looking for committee volunteers to help with special projects or events, or to bring fresh ideas to our meetings. It is a great way to meet other parents and learn about what is happening at the school! Please don’t hesitate to ask for more details on how you might be able to get involved.
