Home and School Overview


The Home and School is 100% a parent volunteer organization. "The strength of a school is not found in how many kids show up in class, but in how many parents attend the school's activities!" H&S is a wonderful opportunity for you to volunteer and give back to the school. We hope you will embrace your call to be a part of Home and School to show support for the kids!

The purpose of the Home and School is to support our school's commitment to our mission statement through:

  • fundraising efforts
  • teacher appreciation
  • student programs
  • foster communications between the school and home

Home & School's Motto is "Many Hands Make Light Work."

We all know firsthand that we only get out what we put in – the more time and talent we invest the more our students and school community will thrive. Given the circumstances of this year, we need your help more than ever.

Each year HandS needs volunteers, funding, and ideas. Please participate throughout the year by:

  • Sharing your ideas and talents for making each year better than the last
  • Volunteering to lead or assist with an event or fundraiser
  • Participating in fundraisers that pay for the social and enrichment events
  • Encouraging your student(s) to participate and enjoy events throughout the year

Thank you in advance for making and taking time to sign up for at least one Home and School activity during the 2020-2021 school year.
