Parent Volunteering

Everest’s vision for meeting our mission to prepare students for college, career, and life success is fulfilled with the support of our wonderful parents and community members. Our most successful families embrace our values and beliefs, and actively engage in modeling our six core characteristics: respect, responsibility, courage, compassion, curiosity, and integrity.

We encourage parents to participate in school events at least once per year to meet other students and families and work together to support our community. These volunteer opportunities have fostered personal relationships between families that have led to a virtuous cycle of support and accountability for all of our students. We understand that families differ in how much time they are able volunteer, thus they are different opportunities to do so, ranging from Camping Trip Chaperone (2 day commitment) to contributing a dish to a Teacher Luncheon (1 hour or less commitment). Sign-in to Konstella to see the latest volunteer opportunities.

 

Everest Parent Organization (EPO)

The EPO coordinates and supplies the volunteer power that helps support all the programs and events we do throughout the year. By becoming involved you are automatically a member – no dues or registration required! We welcome your participation — it’s vital to the success of Everest, and very much appreciated!

 

The Role of the EPO

The objectives of the EPO are to:

  • Establish and maintain a working relationship among parents, school and community.
  • Support school and promote the finest education possible for the students at Everest PH.
  • Enhance the quality of education by raising funds for school equipment or programs that fall outside the school budget.
