Volunteer Opportunities

Middle School Open House Committee

A parent committee is forming to plan for an open house to showcase our new campus space and involve the greater community in a celebration at the start of next school year.  The open house date is set for September 24, 2022.  

If you enjoy event planning and would like to lend your ideas and experience to this committee, please contact Lisa at [email protected].  We will start planning at the beginning of May.


Uniform Committee

There is a need for 4-6 parents to be involved in a Uniform Committee to serve for the coming school year.  Duties include reviewing the uniform policy and making any recommendations for changes, and doing in-school checks on uniform adherence.  Please contact Lisa at [email protected] if you wish to serve in this capacity next year.


A complete list of ongoing opportunities for parents to participate can be found here.  Opportunities have been added for the next school year.  Please browse the list and see if there is an area where you can serve.

Community Relations


Submissions are open for the June and September newsletters.  

Do you have an achievement or special event you’d like to share? Are you doing something throughout the summer that we can feature in September?  What about some kudos to inspire others or ideas for intentional acts of kindness?  

Please send your submissions to Lisa Klym at [email protected].
