Mark Day School Parents' Association

Volunteers for 2019 - 2020

Want to help your kids and the Mark Day School community? Looking to meet new people and make good friends? Please select one or more of the volunteer spots below. You don't need any experience, just a willingness to help. Parents' Association volunteers are on call to partner with or train you. Mark Day School is relying on all of us to keep these traditions thriving! 

Don't have a lot of time? Consider the "ongoing programs" that are not date specific and can often be managed from home in your off hours. 

Need to schedule ahead? Choose from "date specific events" so you can block your calendar in advance. 

Want to know more about the roles? For more complete information, please see detailed descriptions for Date Specific Events and Ongoing Programs in the Parents' Association section of the school website. 

Have questions about timing or which area needs the most help? Email one of Mark Day School's many nice and experienced parent volunteers, Tiffany Greenfield, at [email protected]. Thank you in advance for your help!
