With the students all settled in and Back to School Night behind us, it is now time for the parents to settle in. Dunham President Bobby Welch always says that volunteers are the heartbeat of our school. When parents and the school work together, it creates a powerful team.
Serving as a parent volunteer enriches your child’s education. Volunteer efforts greatly benefit the School, but volunteering also can be beneficial to you as parents. It allows you to meet other parents, which can enhance professional connections, personal friendships and offer deeper insights into the lives of your children and their classmates. Volunteering also helps parents to understand more fully how the school’s mission is carried out and to develop a relationship with the Dunham leadership. Most importantly, volunteering is an expression of your interest in and commitment to your child’s daily life.
There are many volunteer opportunities at Dunham! From community events like Men’s Steak Night and Ladies Night Out at Royal Standard sponsored by the Dunham Parents Association to project fundraisers like Jubilee and Carnival, there is a spot for everyone to serve.
If your child is involved in the Fine Arts Program, then Partners in the Arts is the place for you. Or, if your child has a love for sports, then you can be a part of Pawbackers.

We also ask parents to pray—for our students, our faculty/staff/administration and our community. Please click here to sign up to receive the Pray Dunham emails or to submit a prayer request.
Feel free to contact me. I am looking forward to a great school year!
