• Each year, families join our Dragon Club to get involved in school life. The Dragon Club includes parents, grandparents, teachers and friends who share their time and talents with our community. This group partners with the Board of Trustees and school administration to engage and assemble volunteers for schoolwide events. 

    Parent volunteers are essential in creating successful community events and this is a fun way to meet other families. We ask each family to volunteer for at least three activities throughout the school year.

    We need volunteers for:

    Room Parents
    Plan and oversee 3 seasonal parties for your child’s class or suite. Plan and oversee 1-2 parent social events during the year. Collect items for your class auction basket at our Dragon Gala. Facilitate communication with parents about schoolwide events and initiatives.
