INVOLVED PARENTS MAKE A SCHOOL BETTER

Because of the dedication of our parents, we are not simply a school — we are a community of families.
We value parent engagement. Relationships between parents, faculty, students, and administrators are strengthened by parent involvement in the volunteer opportunities offered through our parent groups — classroom Parent Service Teams and the Parent-Teacher Fellowship. By finding meaningful, rewarding ways to share time and talents, our parents find their place at ICS and develop a sense of community. Through volunteerism, friendships are forged, valuable work is done, and all aspects of our school community are enhanced.

ABOUT PARENT SERVICE HOURS

Parent Service Hours allow us to involve parents more consistently in the life of our school and allows every parent to take ownership in the ministry of Immanuel Christian School. When our parents volunteer, they see us in a practical and personal way and stand shoulder to shoulder with other parents in service activities. At the same time, it extends tuition dollars by having volunteers perform some tasks that might otherwise have to be paid for through professional services. Each family is required to serve a total of 20 hours of service per year. Single-parent families are required to fulfill half the number of service hours. Parents who simply cannot give the time must pay a fee at the end of the school year.

PARENT SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES

Every class makes use of ParentSquare, our communication app, to maintain a class volunteer list for activities and field trips. View a few opportunities below that support and enrich our educational program.
