Grandparents Day 2023

Get Involved

The Christ School Parent Teacher Fellowship is our school’s organization that brings parents, teachers, and staff members together to support one another through community building events and activities that enrich your child’s school year.

PTF Council Meetings

Every parent is a member of our Parent Teacher Fellowship!

Council meetings are typically held on the second Thursday of the month. This is a great time to learn about the upcoming events and happenings at TCS and see how you can get involved! Meetings are held on campus. They begin at 8:30 am and last one hour.

2023-24 PTF Council Meetings will be held on:

October 5, 2023
November 2, 2023
February 1, 2024
April 4, 2024

The Christ School 2023-2024 PTF Events & Volunteer Opportunities

Lower School Classroom Helpers (Year-round)

Join your child’s class as a Centers Helper, Mystery Reader, Bible Verse Checker, or help with a special project! Volunteer opportunities vary by grade level and teacher, but there is something for everyone. Watch for an email sign-up from your Room Parent or homeroom teacher.

Curriculum Partners (Year-round)

Volunteering as a Curriculum Partner allows parents, grandparents, and friends in the community to share their professional expertise and knowledge with our students throughout the year. Volunteers may lead a lecture, share a video, offer a field trip to their workplace, or guide students through a hands-on learning activity. Teachers will determine the best way to utilize our volunteers to enhance the curriculum, create unique classroom opportunities, provide real world experiences for our students, and help us develop great learners. Please complete the online form to participate.
