Active Participation

We encourage parents, grandparents, and special friends to play an active part in our students’ education by volunteering in the classroom, participating in holiday or community celebrations, attending school events, joining a Parent Association committee, or serving as a class captain for the Annual Campaign. Our hope is that all of you will find a way to participate and discover how involvement can enhance your family’s school experience. Volunteering opens doors to lifelong friendships, enhances your personal experience, and immeasurably enriches the community. No matter how much time you can give, please know that your participation will truly make a difference.

The Parent Association (PA)

The Parent Association is dedicated to supporting the mission of BHDS through its partnership with the administration, faculty, trustees, parents, and students. The purpose of the PA is to foster a sense of community and to provide a forum for communication. Every parent belongs to the PA and is invited to attend meetings. To learn about the PA opportunities, please contact the advancement office at 415.406.1035, x 1011.

Event Volunteer

Each year our community joins together in a fundraising event that supports the Annual Fund and extends our financial support of our program. Every other year we rotate between a gala-type event and a golf tournament. An online auction is an integral part of both of these events and helps support the event with critical income. To become involved with special events, please contact the advancement office at 415.406.1035, x 1011.
