I am not only an avid volunteer at Green Park Lutheran School, I am also a parent of a student who attends. Over the past years I have served in various capacities - most recently as PTO president. The teachers and staff were always so grateful of all of the things PTO was able to accomplish. They were especially excited when we were able to add to their yearly classroom budgets - allowing them to buy more resources for the children in their classes. We spent time and money updating the technology available to the children because the school recognizes the critical importance of children having technology at their fingertips and knowing how to navigate the new media landscapes. Making a difference through volunteering is one thing, but it is quite another when you are able to work with such an amazing group of people who are dedicated to the quality of education - it makes the experience so much more gratifying. I'm so grateful that my child is a part of such a wonderful community of Christian educators and staff who are dedicated to educational excellence and are continually raising the bar on it as well!
This school is not new to me. We have had several of our children & grandson attend and graduate from Green park.
So this is another generation that I'm volunteering for. The staff is excellent, caring, nurturing and cooperative with us, the volunteers. Being a weekly library helper I see several grades of smiling eager faces. We make sure the reading selection of books is age-appropriate. and yes we even repair the books .
The music department offers violin, our grand son's favorite , band and coral opportunities. The seasonal plays and celebrations are always open to grandparents and guests, what a Joy and uplifting experience for us all.
The love of the Lord is alive in this place.
