As a parent of a Faithful Shepherd student, you automatically become a member of a vibrant community of parents and families that help to build and foster a wonderful FSCS environment for our children. You have the choice to become more involved at any level at which you feel comfortable—from chairing a school community event to something as simple as collecting box tops and soup can labels at home. You may want to volunteer as a helper at a school community event, in the classroom, or simply participate in a school event with your child. There are countless opportunities for you to play a part in helping Faithful Shepherd ensure a strong school for our children, and best of all—the choice is yours!

Committees and Fundraisers
Have experience in fundraising, marketing, or finance? FSCS offers the opportunity to put those skills to use on our Development, Marketing, and Finance Committees. We’re consistently looking for talented people to join our teams and help move the school forward.
If events and fundraisers are of more interest, we have four major events happening during the school year that need many volunteers to assure success. SeptemberFest, the Gala, the Annual Appeal, and Ecothon are just around the corner. Check out our Annual Fundraisers page for more information. 

If you have further questions or comments, please feel free to contact any one of the HSA board members; we are here to answer your questions.
