Through parents’ volunteer work, we are able to host school and community events, improve facilities, and provide countless other benefits. Volunteering not only benefits the students, faculty, and school, but it also benefits you, the parent. By getting involved in your child’s school, you meet other families, build a network of friendships, and stay in touch with your child’s life.
