Parent Volunteer Committee Sign-Up

  • Parent engagement is a vital part of the First Presbyterian Church Preschool. In the past, each family has been strongly encouraged to sign up for at least one Parent Volunteer Activity over the course of the school year. However, due to the Phase 4 rules of the coronavirus reopening, we expect there to be limited Parent Volunteer opportunities this year.

    For now, the only available opportunities are decorating the entrance bulletin board and playdough-making for the children’s use during class. Coronavirus reopening guidelines require each student to have their own portion of playdough, so we will need an increased supply this year and thus more volunteers.

    To make sure each child has his/her own playdough, we are hoping each family can sign up for a slot throughout the year. We’ll resend links with more information as new opportunities arise throughout the year.

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

    Please contact Parent Programs Committee with any questions or concerns:
