Parents Council

JBS parents and guardians are automatically members of the Parents Council, which fosters involvement and communication within the parent body and with the school. Parents are a visible presence on campus, and parents who wish to be actively involved have many options.The Parents Council provides a variety of services, sponsors student, parent and community events and raises funds for the benefit of the students, faculty and administration. The Council functions through a board comprised of an executive committee, nominating chair, standing committees, and grade chairs.
In addition to organizing the fundraisers, the Parents Council promotes a sense of community among our parents, supports our students and faculty and serves the greater community. Parents provide services to the school, such as volunteering in the bookstore or the library; they plan programming for parents; they dedicate countless hours to the execution of three major fundraising events; and they plan activities for students. The extent of their volunteer commitment can be as much or as little as fits into their schedules. Check out the possibilities...and perhaps sign up!
