The high level of parent involvement at Teach is one of the strengths of our school, and we are eager for  you join in the fun!   Your involvement helps Teach School make a profound, positive impact on our students as they grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, and creatively and as they develop into future contributors to our diverse, global community.

Parent volunteers make a difference in our students' lives in many ways:
  • As elective instructors to teach 5 week in the Fall and/or Winter.
  • As helpers or organizers for 
    • Tiger Challenge and other fundraisers
    • Community building events 
    • Staff-led events 
  • As room parents to organize classroom events
  • As chaperones for extended overnight study trips for 3-5 days off work.
    • Please note that chaperone spots are limited and chosen by the staff to meet the needs of the students.
    • Please also note that chaperones are responsible for their own costs (meals, lodging and/or transportation) on these overnight study trips.
If you are interested in volunteering for any of these activities as a helper or organizer (see volunteer roles below) and:
