Gala Volunteers

Service Week


Parents, alumni and friends support the Priory with their time and talents as well as their financial gifts. They bring a wide range of invaluable professional and practical skills such as project management, event management, architectural drafting, legal and financial expertise, photography, and more. Their energy and contacts allow students to enjoy such guests as primatologist Jane Goodall, the Children of Uganda dance troupe, the Tibetan monks, and the Young Concert Artists in Residence program. Volunteer follow-through is what keeps the events enjoyable and the holiday decorations fresh and lovely; they are even behind many school community service projects.

Parent Volunteers serve in various capacities, from leadership on the PPA (Priory Parent Association) and its committees to hands-on work in the Franklin Garden, to Annual Fund Class Chairs.  Volunteer roles change, as people come and go, but the value of volunteerism within the school will never change and, "All are welcome."
