Volunteering

Parents play a crucial role at Brilliant Star. This is a community of parents and educators (many of whom are parents here too). Few schools are so open and responsive to suggestions and concerns. Brilliant Star strongly encourages families to feel at home and to participate in the broader life of the school through social and educational activities offered by the school. Although some parents may spend considerable amounts of time as volunteers at Brilliant Star, there is no expectation for a set time commitment.

There are some things that even money can’t buy, and one of the most valuable contributions that families make to Brilliant Star is the gift of their time and expertise.

Parents, grandparents, and friends of the school who give of their time and talent share with their families special memories of experiences and friendships that endure well beyond their children’s graduation.

A few ways in which you can help out at Brilliant Star:

  • Lend your time and support to the fund raising efforts.
  • Join us for periodic Open Houses to meet prospective families.
  • Help organize special events, such as International Day, Kite Festival, Holiday Bazaar, Gala Dinner, and Trash for Cash Clean Ups.
  • Share your special skills with the school – repair materials, shop for the school, help recruit staff, sew things when needed, help with prepare tax forms, mow the lawn, paint, help with renovations, anything at all!

Brilliant Star depends on our combined talents. Talk with the Principal if you are able to help.

Committees

The task of committees is to assist the Administration in fulfilling its responsibilities. Committees often work closely with the school’s principal and professional staff to plan and coordinate specific programs and special events.

Committee membership should reflect the particular blend of skills, expertise, perspectives, energy, and enthusiasm best suited to the goals of each committee.

Special Events Committee is responsible for organizing special events, with the members assuming key roles in carrying each event to successful conclusion.

Fund Raising Event Committee is responsible for establishing all fund raising campaigns, with the members assuming key roles in carrying each campaign to successful conclusion. It also recommends policies to the Board regarding fund raising, the acceptance of gifts, planned giving, and capital campaigns.

Other committees are formed as the need arises.
