2019-2020
Parent Committee Sign-Ups
Note from Brittany Ryden
Hi everyone. As well as handling admissions, I am the liaison for our parent committees here at CBA. Most of our committees are run by dedicated parent volunteers who serve as committee chairs. Otherwise they are directed by a faculty or staff member. I encourage you to review our 2019-2020 committees and sign up using the link below. Feel free to reach out with any questions!

Why Become a Parent Volunteer?
"I volunteer because I enjoy being part of my kids' school. They love seeing me there during their day. These years go by fast and I want to be an active participant. I also have great pride in our school and it makes me feel good to contribute." --Kathryn O'Dell

"I initially volunteered as a way to give to Clayton-Bradley. I have continued to volunteer for the students because it brings me joy. Days like Field Day or Water Day allow you to see what a truly special place CBA is and why our kids love their school." --Stacey Bennett
By signing up for a parent committee, you are agreeing to serve on one or more of the events listed under that committee. Further details will be shared by your committee chair or faculty/staff representative. All events are during daytime hours unless otherwise noted. Thank you for signing up!
