Which committee should I join?

Here’s a quick guide to see how you might plug yourself in to what we’re doing:

Writers: Communications and Fundraising will put your skills to excellent use!

Graphic Designers: Help make SOF special events, rooftop garden, and school store look fabulous!

Tech folks: Our Fundraising and Communications committees need your help with managing data, developing our social media policy, and website updates.

Outreach extroverts: Your flair for talking to people and/or sending engaging emails can make our Fundraising committee’s fall and spring fundraising outreach resounding successes! You can also be one of our Grade Reps, who organize grade-wide social events—a tremendous service for your child’s class. Once you have done this, you might move on to a leadership role on the Executive Board.  

Super organized: You could be our Volunteer Coordinator, who reaches out to find and coordinate volunteers for SOF and PA events.

Can’t commit?: There are plenty of one-offs you can do, including updating one of our Family Directories in Excel and being on site for a few hours to help with a special event. 

Oh, and we always need photos of the varied experiences our students have. Please share your shots of students, faculty, events with [email protected]. Thanks for being an extra pair of eyes and on-the-ground photographer for us!
