We are in need of front desk volunteers. If you are interested read the post below.

We are searching for volunteers to work the front desk. This is a critical volunteer role for the school and a great way to be involved. It is a wonderful way to get to know the teachers better and to see your child during the school day. The teachers are very appreciative when parents volunteer for this important role. If a parent is unable to fill the spot, then teachers must step in to work the front desk. Volunteers can bring their laptops, a book, or whatever else to pass the time.

We are looking for parents that can commit to a weekly spot at the front desk. Shifts are 8am-12pm or 12pm-3:30pm Monday-Friday.

If you are unable to commit to something regularly but can fill in when people are out, that is extremely helpful as well. All parents that would like to volunteer or attend field trips this school year will need to complete a background check! Please reach out to our volunteer coordinator to get a background check cleared: [email protected]


Meet the Teacher is Friday, July 21 from 3:30-5:30pm! Join us for this come-and-go event where you can participate in a scavenger hunt and try for a prize! We also have a limited number of school supply packs and spirit wear for sale. If you are not purchasing a pack, here is the link for school supplies by grade level:

*Follow our new page,, this one will be inactive next month.*
