Volunteer Opportunities
2013-14


 
There are a wide range of opportunities to become involved in the life of PBDA as a volunteer. Our main fundraising event, the Feather Ball, is always a parent run event that requires the efforts of many. You may want to join the team that will be putting together that event, scheduled for The Breakers in April. But, there is much more that parents do each year to enhance the programs that their children experience. Below is a small sampling of the volunteer options. Please attend the coffees to experience the full range. Have a look at this list and plan to lend your talents where you can. Whatever your interest, we’ve got a place for you!
 
Speakers Forum
PBDA presents a speaker series comprised of well-known speakers addressing topics that are relevant to parenting in today’s world. Under the direction of a chairperson, volunteers may help with mailings, setting up for events or selling books authored by the speaker.
 
Book Fair
This year the book fair on the Upper Campus will have a new format. If you are interested in helping to design and plan this event please let us know. The date is undetermined at this time.
 
Family Picnic and School Carnival
The Family Picnic and school carnival are traditions on the Upper Campus. Parents, students and special friends are invited to the school for a casual dinner with games and activities for the children. Volunteers will be asked to help organize food, activities and games, and assist with set up and clean up after the event. The event will be held on April 25, 2013.
 
Bulldog Outreach
Bulldog Outreach is a school-wide community service program. PBDA students participate in various outreach programs throughout the year, as well as specific grade level initiatives that are designed to help students develop an understanding of the genuine needs of others. Parent volunteers are needed to help facilitate these programs. Volunteers are encouraged to share ideas, help plan events, and assist with the collection and distribution of donated items.

The 18th Annual Golf Classic will be held November 23rd at the Breakers Ocean Course. A Happy Hour preceding the event will be hosted November 22nd. Events are open to parents, grandparents, and alumni. Student golfers are encouraged to play in the golf classic. Committee members, underwriters, sponsors, and volunteers are needed.
 
Feather Ball Committee
The Feather Ball will be held at the Breakers on April 11th and will bring together school families, alumni, present and past Trustees, community and business leaders, and friends from around the country. The Feather Ball offers countless opportunities for your involvement. We need your assistance in obtaining the following: Underwriting, live and silent auction items. Committee members are needed for class projects, set-up, decorations, invitations, and much more.
 
Corporate Sponsorship Committee

Teacher Appreciation Week
Parent volunteers organize this week long event which will take place May 5-9, 2013. In keeping with a long tradition on the upper campus, each family is asked to bring in their favorite dish for an elaborate pot-luck luncheon for the teachers. The Teacher Appreciation committee will organize the luncheon and plan other activities for the teachers throughout the week.

Volunteers are needed to organize uniform donations and prepare and run the Used Uniform Sale in late August. Volunteers must be available during the month of August.
