It Takes a Village
Parent and community volunteers are integral to our school’s success. From working with students, to beautifying the grounds, to fundraising, to offering enrichment opportunities and special events, our school would not be the unique community it is without our Volunteers. There are many ways for you to get involved in our community. You can simply help with events, join a team or volunteer to take on a leadership role. Scroll down to find more information about these opportunities. We look forward to hearing from you!
