Volunteer

Each year the Home & School Association asks that you prayerfully consider how you can share your time and talent by volunteering for one of the many Home & School Chair positions available for the next school year.

The Fall Gala will again be run by ALL families of the 4th grade class and Golf Outing will be run by ALL families of the 6th grade class.  Home and School, as well as Mrs. Rehfield, Father Dan and School Board are confident this assignment process will foster community within the classes and give all families an opportunity to volunteer their time and talents to our school’s two largest fundraisers.  Of course, if you do not have a 4th or 6th grader next year and you are still interested in helping with one of these fundraisers, we would love to have you! 

Home and School’s mission is to enhance our children’s educational experience and we can’t do our job without the help of our Parent Volunteers.  We strongly encourage and need all families to get involved!  Thank you, for all you do to help make our school a wonderful place for our children.
