Grace loves our parent and grandparent volunteers! One of the great things about Grace is the volunteer support we have from our families. As our school grows, we want to make sure that our families are included in the planning and execution of activities on campus. We do this by including all parents and grandparents as part of our Parent’s Association.
We count on our parents and grandparents to help make Grace special by volunteering time throughout the school year. We would not be able to have each of the wonderful events at Grace without this support.
There are two ways to volunteer at Grace Episcopal Day School. You can chaperone a field trip or serve on a school committee.
Chaperone a Field Trip
Speak with your child’s classroom teacher about upcoming field trips. You must complete the Safeguarding online class to attend any field trip with Grace. If you are asked to transport children in your vehicle, you must also complete the Transporting Children Form and supply a copy of your driver’s license and proof of insurance to the front office.
Serve on a School Committee
These are great opportunities for all parents, including those with limited availability during the school day. Complete the Committee Volunteer Form with your contact information and submit it to your child’s classroom teacher, the front office, or email it to Melissa Van Horn at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our volunteer coordinator will be in touch with you about details of each event.
What is the Safeguarding God’s Children online class and how do I complete it?
Safeguarding Online teaches volunteers how to keep our children safe from abuse and teaches you how to protect yourself from false allegations of abuse. The step-by-step courses are interactive and easy to understand. The program is Internet-based so you can access it anytime, from anywhere. Please contact Dana Whitelaw in the office (email@example.com or 904-269-3718) to register for the Safeguarding online class.
