Parents are essential members of the Lamplighter community. Families are committed to supporting one another and working together to strengthen the education of Lamplighter students. Parents’ unique voices and varied strengths enrich the lives of all members of the Lamplighter community. Families create and enjoy some of the most memorable experiences of their children’s early education. Serving as stewards and beneficiaries, parents are part of a true community, where lifelong friendships and important memories are made.

AUCTION: Auction gala is a significant school fundraiser and always one of the best parents’ night out of the year. Parent volunteers plan, produce, and promote a themed and memorable Auction event each year.  

CARNIVAL: Carnival is a parent organized event and a treasured community tradition. The Carnival is where our newest families and our oldest friends gather to celebrate our school's community. 

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: Within the Lamplighter community, volunteer opportunities abound. In support of classroom projects, community building, event planning, fundraising, leadership and more, parents contribute time, skills, effort and resources.
