Volunteer Opportunities

As the link between families and the administration, faculty, and staff at McGillis, the Parent Association (PA) provides many opportunities for parents to volunteer and become involved with the community. There is a wide range of volunteer options available, depending on your time and flexibility, and we hope you will find an opportunity that suits your skills and interests.


During the 2021-2022 school year many of these opportunities may be on hold.

Parent Association Events – Zoom/In-Person


Parent Association events provide a forum for parents to become more involved with the community, through informal social gatherings, as well as administration-led discussions, and educational presentations.


This year we will be combining most of the monthly Coffee Klatch get togethers with PA-sponsored community conversations and speaker presentations, which were formerly called All PA meetings. We have also moved these events to Thursday mornings at 8:30am. The topics for the conversations will be communicated well in advance, if not already, so that you may plan ahead if you would like to attend.
