November Events

Volunteer Opportunities

Embers parent volunteers offer a huge resource and support base for our school.
Help us create a community that is warm and inviting! 

The Embers Parent Association Hospitality Committee is looking for volunteers to help welcome parents to the school and manage refreshments at a table by the Visitor entrance during Parent Teacher conferences. 

Volunteers can sign up for a spot before or after their scheduled conference. Refreshments will be set up and taken down by Hospitality Coordinators, Kate DeCanto and Kelly Beck.
