This year-round committee needs volunteers to help with keeping the library organized and tidy. This includes checking in and reshelving returned books, and adding new books to the online catalog. Volunteer time can be weekly, monthly or as often as you like.
TCS PARENT AMBASSADORS
(Chair: Admissions Team)
Do you enjoy meeting new people? Do you find yourself talking to perfect strangers about all the things you and your child love about TCS? If the answer to these questions is yes, we would love to have your help with upcoming admissions events. Parent Ambassadors assist the Admissions office with a variety of events throughout the year including: weekday admissions group tours, speaking at open house events, evening calls to applicant families to answer questions and more! Your commitment can be as limited or as extensive as you choose. All you need is a positive attitude and a desire to help out, and the Admissions department will provide assistance and training for everything else.
