Parent Volunteer Committee Sign-Up

  • Parent participation is a vital function of the First Presbyterian 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 sign up for a volunteer commitment. If you’d like to sign up for more than one commitment, feel free to do so.  

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