Be A Parent-Volunteer

Parent Volunteer Opportunities


Parent-Volunteers help organize Al-Salam Day School events and programs, giving our students in Daycare through 10th grade the environment they need and deserve. Parents who volunteer are making a commitment to invest their personal time into our school. We value you and ask that you seek an area where you can best showcase your strengths in bettering our school. 

Bring in a signed copy of the Confidentiality, Care, & Commitment Agreement and select areas where you feel you can be most helpful on the Parent-Volunteer Sign-Up sheet.
You can download a copy of these documents here. You can also pick up copies from Al-Salam Day School and the Early Childhood Center.
