When your child enrolls at Moorestown Friends School, you become part of the community, too.
There are many opportunities for MFS parents and guardians to become involved. If you’d like to volunteer, please contact Director of Constituent Engagement Kyrie Palan.
Here are a few of the traditions that continue year after year.
Parent Council is the primary organization which oversees and organizes parent involvement. Working closely with the MFS administration, Parent Council leaders and volunteers seek to create opportunities for all parents and guardians to contribute their diverse talents to the school community by working on various committees and attending fundraising events, workshops, discussion groups, and other activities.
The MFS Parent Council is comprised of all parents, the Head of School, Upper, Middle and Lower School Directors, Director of Development, Director of Constituent Engagement and the Parent Council Executive Committee. The Executive Committee includes the All-School Coordinators, Division Coordinators, and volunteer committee leaders as requested.
Be an ambassador for MFS! Assist with open houses, tours of the school and follow-up phone calls to interested families.
Work with Parent Council, Division Coordinators and Class Parents to offer assistance throughout the year at MFS events.
Two sets of families from each grade work closely with the classroom teachers, especially in the Lower School, to offer assistance throughout the year.
