Parent Volunteer Committee Sign-Up

  • Parent engagement is a vital part of the First Presbyterian Church Preschool. Each family is strongly encouraged to sign up for at least one of the Parent Volunteer Activities. We sincerely hope this responsibility will be regarded as a privilege.  Parent participation is an integral part of the school, a source of pride to the children and a tremendous help to the preschool.

    Please take a few minutes to understand each volunteer commitment and sign up where you see fit. We welcome you to sign up for more than one volunteer activity when space isn’t limited. 

    Thank you in advance for your assistance and time to make this school year a wonderful one for all students.

    If you need to remove your sign-up, please contact the Parent Programs Committee:
