Plenty of Ways to Plug In
Trinity Episcopal School's Parent Council is a volunteer group that supports our school and our core values through programs, activities and events. The group is for parents, by parents, and it exists to further the school's mission to nurture each child academically, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Every Trinity parent is a member, and we encourage all to get involved.
Whether you have a lot of time to share or just a little, we hope you will take the time to engage with the parent community at Trinity. The council meets monthly on campus. A representative from the school is always present to provide an update or educate the parent community on a timely subject. Volunteers are welcome throughout the year to help with ongoing programs as well as one-off events.
Parent Council supports more than 20 different programs and events at Trinity, and we welcome volunteers to help throughout the year. We encourage moms, dads and grandparents to participate in Parent Council. All parents are welcome to attend committee meetings, even if you're not yet on a committee. Meetings are hosted on the second Wednesday of each month at 8 a.m. in the Lower School library.
Not ready to volunteer yet? That's okay; meetings are a great way to meet other parents and hear updates on current topics. There's also a new Parent Council coffee and general meeting once a trimester where the parent community can get to know one another and feel more connected to the school through a school‑representative speaker.
Join Trinity dads in opening car doors Wednesdays from 7:30 to 8 a.m. This is a fun way to meet the students, faculty and staff, and other dads. Often the carpool dads meet for breakfast after duty.
Trinity's Parent Council serves lunch to both Lower School and Middle School students from 11 a.m. to 12:40 p.m. every school day of the year. It's a great chance to see your child during the school day.
Coordinate and prepare refreshments for various school functions. Events include the snow cone party, back‑to‑school night, new parent orientation and more.
Faculty / Staff Appreciation Lunches
Help us say “thanks” to the very special people who nurture our children each day. Coordinate lunches and special treats for Trinity teachers and administrators throughout the year.
Help sell T‑shirts, pencils, frisbees, etc. for parents and students. This committee has a blast selecting, ordering and selling Trinity goods throughout the school year.
Help plan and execute two spirit nights: one in the fall and one in the spring. Make locker tags for sports teams, academic achievements and arts performances.
Are you mad for plaid? Collect, sort and sell donated, gently worn Trinity uniforms in the fall and spring.
Help coordinate the annual Dads’ Breakfast, which includes a morning meal and a keynote speaker.
We partner with Book People for a week-long festival of books and reading to raise money for our libraries. Parents can help with publicity, special events, recommended reads and more.
Help get the school get in the holiday spirit and deck the halls for December. This job is once a year and a great way to get in the holiday spirit. It is usually done over a weekend.
Grandparents & Special Friends Day
Help us welcome grandparents and special friends to campus, where they visit classrooms and learn about life at Trinity.
A Night to Shine
This fundraising gala features great food, music, dancing, and both silent and live auctions. All funds raised from this event are distributed to the financial assistance and faculty professional development programs.
No artistic ability is required for this one: come help set up the spring art show by mounting students’ art on paper frames and hanging the art around campus.
This all-time favorite Trinity event is similar to a field day. It features food, yard games, water slides, a bounce house and more.
