Parent Volunteers: the Heart of NCP!

Northside loves parent volunteers! Volunteering is an easy way to positively impact your student’s Northside experience and a great way to meet other engaged parents, administration, faculty and staff. Parents are welcome and needed in so many areas, including fundraising, chaperoning dances and field trips, providing refreshments for school events, working on our new student/parent database, welcoming college admissions officers – the list goes on!

We hope you can find a volunteer opportunity that fits your interests. Please visit our Committees page to learn more. Friends of Northside asks every family to contribute 10 hours to Northside each year. Please indicate your interests in your FON Connect profile.
