The Covenant School thrives on parent participation and offers many opportunities to participate in school life, make friends, and grow in faith. These include:
- Volunteering in the classroom
- Chaperoning field trips
- Attending Chapel and weekly parent prayer
- Planning and attending special events
- Leading school projects and fundraisers
- Serving the fine arts department and athletic teams
“It’s been extremely important to me for my daughters to see that I care about their school, and I want to give back to a place that has done so much for them. It’s rewarding to know that I am making a difference.” -Covenant parent
Beyond support for the larger events, parents seek to partner with administrators, teachers, and coaches as we collectively educate and train each student. An ongoing dialogue allows all groups to understand the student more thoroughly and helps Covenant students grow in mind, body, and spirit.
“Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
Beyond the events and the classroom, parents occupy a significant and somewhat less noticeable role. Their relationships with each other turn our campus into a formidable presence of community. As a parent goes through their own learning process of parenting, they are surrounded by hundreds of people on the same journey. So, if you really want to be involved in the culture of Covenant, look for ways to connect with other parents. They are also looking for fellow travelers!
“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11
