Hot Lunch

A subgroup of the PTO, the Hot Lunch Committee schedules, organizes and runs a Hot Lunch program that provides lunches for students from local vendors. Parent volunteers fill all the positions required for the management of this program.

Docents

Parents maintain Science and Art Docent programs to support student education in those fields. Chairpersons schedule class lessons and labs with teachers to provide hands-on curriculum coordinated activities that are then staffed by parent volunteers.

Fundraising

There are three parent-led major fundraisers each year that are intended to help offset increases in operating expenses and keep tuition as low as possible. Parent involvement in these events is mandatory. More information can be found in the Parent / Student School Handbook on pages 13 and 14.
