Volunteering is highly valued at La Scuola and it is an important part of the Reggio Emilia philosophy. Each family shares time and talent by doing general volunteer work, serving on a school committee or in connection with one of our fundraisers. There are many ways to give your time and energy for the benefit of our children and our community!
Volunteer committees include:
Parents Association of La Scuola (PALS)
Diversity & Inclusion
Lending Library / K-8 Library
Fundraising / Development
Garden / Yard
Facilities / Building / Site Search
Marketing / PR
All La Scuola parents are part of the Parents Association which supports our children, faculty and community as a whole. Grazie di cuore!
