Mark Day School Parents' Association

Volunteers for 2020 - 2021

Thank you for your continued commitment to Mark Day School through your volunteerism! We will be transforming many of our traditional events and programs because of the pandemic and will need your help. There is no better way to bond with your fellow parents than to pitch in on a volunteer gig. You don't need any experience. Parents' Association volunteers are on call to partner with or support you. Mark Day School is counting on 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. 

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 welcoming and experienced parent volunteers, Tiffany Greenfield, at [email protected]. Thank you in advance for your help!
