Get Involved

CSB Parents Association 2018-19 Roles and Events

Administrative Support and Volunteer Coordination

Volunteers help with various adminstrative projects like envelope stuffing for invitations. Volunteers are recruited by the Admin Support Coordinator.

Admissions
Volunteers help the school's Director of Admission show prospective parents around the school and attend some Evening Presentations. Tours are held Wednesday and Friday mornings from September through January, and Evening Presentations are throughout the year.

Art & Display
Volunteers are needed to help our fabulous art teachers prepare the boys' artwork for display around the school. Projects range from matting pictures to organizing work to gluing pieces onto display stands. Showcasing the boys' artwork helps them build a sense of pride in their creative abilities. Coordinate with other members of our community to artistically communicate and inform the school about its members, events, and activities through various displays throughout the school.

Community Service and Engagement
All boys take part in age-appropriate service learning opportunities throughout the year.  As the students move up through the grades, these opportunities will become more regular through partnerships with Grace Cathedral, neighborhood schools, and local organizations.

CSB Sunday and All-School Picnic
CSB Sunday is scheduled for Sunday, October 21, 2018, at Grace Cathedral.  Service begins at 11 am in Grace Cathedral followed immediately by the picnic festivities on the Plaza.

Diversity, Inclusion and Parent Engagement

Fall Bash
Celebrate and support Cathedral School for Boys on October 12, 2018, at this festive and casual evening featuring good company, delicious food and drink, and music! More details and invitations to follow soon!

Field Day
Field Day will be held on June 6, 2019, with most families in spirited attendance.  All boys take part in this annual event.  The PA is heavily involved in planning this event, and volunteers are needed to help with food and merchandise sales.

Gala
Join the CSB adult community on the evening of Saturday, March 2, 2019, for a festive night of celebration and camaraderie in support of our school. Enjoy dinner, dancing, and join your friends in the excitement of the live auction (the silent auction will be online prior to the event and will close just after). The Gala is an event you don't want to miss, so save the date and we'll see you there!

Grandparents and Special Friends Day
This annual event will take place Tuesday, November 20, 2018, and is an opportunity for your son to share his school community with his grandparents, extended family and special friends. Taking place in the morning, the event consists of the following: Chapel, a brief school program, a light breakfast, and a visit to the classrooms. Due to space constraints, only parents who volunteer may attend - so not only do volunteers help throw a memory-making event, they also get a first-hand glimpse of their son "hosting" his guests. Volunteers are needed the Monday afternoon and/or Tuesday morning before Thanksgiving break. Monday is dedicated to setting up and decorating. On Tuesday, volunteers help with tasks such as setting up, pouring coffee, photographing attendees, directing people, and cleaning up. All are welcome to help at this wonderful event.

Hospitality and Teacher Appreciation

Library
The CSB Library is the academic hub of the school. Volunteering in this beautiful space is a wonderful way to see CSB in action while supporting literacy, learning, and a lifelong love and habit of reading for all members of the CSB community. The library depends on dedicated parents who are able to support the program by volunteering for two 2-hour shifts monthly. Parents interested in volunteering may either visit the library table at the Parent Association Fair on the first day of school or email Alli Decker, CSB Librarian. Training is provided for all new volunteers or parents who have not volunteered in the past two years. All parents have checkout privileges.

Lunch Program
Volunteers are encouraged to sign up and participate in our Hot Lunch Program. Three to four volunteers are needed daily to assist the boys in the lunch line, make sandwiches, help at the salad bar, assist with waste management, and support the permanent lunch staff. Shifts run from 10:55 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. daily. Volunteers may choose the frequency, day(s) of the week, or specific dates.

Merchandise/Shopping for CSB Program
Help transport goods and staff the sales table for CSB merchandise during events like the All-School Picnic and Field Day. 

Raising funds for CSB is as easy as shopping and spreading the word to other parents! For more information, please visit the Shopping for CSB page on the school website.

Media and Technology

Nominating

SPEAK
Education events take the form of invited guest speakers and media presentations on a variety of topics intended to foster a stronger community and to promote community education. 

Sports Banquet
Each spring, the Athletic Department joins together with the PA to honor CSB athletes. This is a dinner for all Upper School CSB athletes and their parents. All teams, team parents, and coaches are recognized during the dinner. This year's banquet will be held in May 2019. Help with prep, set up, serving, and clean up for this fun evening.

Sustainability

Uniform Closet
The Uniform Closet stocks used CSB uniform items for sale - including pants, shirts, sweaters, fleece jackets, and blazers - all in good condition. Uniform drives are held in the fall and spring of each year, and sales are held at announced times in the front lobby of the school. The Uniform Closet supports the environmental goals of the Parents Association and CSB by promoting the reuse and recycling of existing resources. All proceeds benefit the work of the Parents Association.
