Grandparents

The Parish School Loves Our Grandparents!

Study after study shows that family involvement at school is a great predictor of student success. At The Parish School, we believe “family” extends to grandparents, too! Whether you give your time, talent or treasure, you are a big piece of a Parish education. How can you get involved?  

Volunteer/Join PTO

Our dedicated group of volunteers is one of our greatest assets. There are many ways for families and friends to get involved throughout the year. Contact jstraker@parishschool.org or visit the link below for more information. You are also invited to join us at our monthly PTO meetings starting the second Wednesday of September at 9:15 a.m.

Grandparents' Garden Group

Do you enjoy digging in the dirt, planting flowers or watering plants? Or are you just looking for a way to become more involved at The Parish School? Join the Parish Grandparent Garden Group. Whether you're a master gardener or a novice looking to learn, we'd love to have you! This team meets throughout the year to keep Parish's many gardens growing, and this year, we're including your grandchild in the fun!

Adult Education

Our Adult Education series is free and open to the public. We welcome parents, grandparents, alumni, community members and professionals. We believe in nurturing a love of lifelong learning not only in our students, but also in each other and the community. Educating adults is essential to the growth and development of every child.

Unbabbled Podcast

Navigating the world of special education, communication delays and learning differences can be a challenge. Tune in twice a month to hear Stephanie Landis and Meredith Krimmel, two speech-language pathologists at The Parish School, interview guests from parents to industry professionals with the goal of providing guidance, insight and hope to those touched by children who are differently wired. Each episode covers a different topic related to education or child development.
