Parent Council


Plenty of Ways to Plug-In

Parent Council is a volunteer group that supports Trinity Episcopal School and its 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.

Parent Council supports more than 20 different programs and events at Trinity. We welcome volunteers throughout the year to help with our programs and events. Details about these opportunities are below. We encourage moms, dads, and grandparents to participate. 

All parents are encouraged to attend committee meetings hosted on the second Wednesday of the month at 8 a.m. in the LS library, even if you're not yet on a committee. Not ready to volunteer yet? It's also 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 semester where the parent community can get to know one another and feel more connected to the school through a school representative speaker.
