Parent Volunteer Opportunities

Parent Volunteer Opportunities

 
There are many ways to engage as an S.I.S. parent.
We rely on our parent volunteers to help run our successful events and activities.
If you would like to volunteer, or receive more information, please fill out the form below.
 
Volunteer Opportunities:
 
Parent Association
Every parent at S.I.S. is automatically enrolled in the PA and there are no dues.  The PA holds open meetings throughout the year and also seeks volunteers to take a more active role in the planning of special PA events.
 
Big Night Out
BNO is our annual fundraising event and gala celebration.  Every year we form a BNO Committee with parent volunteers to assist in planning and fundraising.
 
Kite and Flight Festival
Kite and Flight is a free, family event that is open to the greater community.  Volunteers on the Kite and Flight planning committee assist in planning the festival and fundraising.
 
Diversity & Inclusion 
Two years ago, a group comprised of parents and staff joined together to form a Diversity and Inclusion group.  The goal of the D&I group is to promote our own and our children's awareness, understanding, and behavior regarding difference and inclusion.  The work of S.I.S.'s D&I group has informed our own community's practice. The group has been invited to present workshops in venues beyond S.I.S., offering the opportunity for broader conversation about How to Talk with Children About Race and Race in Children's Media.  The D&I group is always looking for more members from our parent body.
 
Odyssey of the Mind 
Be a part of this incredible student experience as you guide a group of students through a creative problem-solving challenge. The process meets weekly over several months and culminates in a regional competition against other schools.
 
After-School Clubs & Activities 
Students at S.I.S. love participating in after-school clubs and enrichment activities.  Do you have a skill that you would like to teach to our students?  We would love to talk to you about forming an after-school club!

If you have any questions about the volunteer opportunities listed, please contact Jennifer Allen, Director of Development & Marketing, at jallen@siskids.org or 518-583-0841.
