Parent Council

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.

Volunteer Opportunities

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.
