Volunteering and PTF

All parents are encouraged to lend their time and God-given talents to the many volunteer opportunities that exist, from classroom parties to academic enrichment programs and school-wide festivals. Strong bonds that link families to SouthLake Christian begin with a welcoming and active Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) organization. Join the PTF in enriching the lives of our students every day!

There are numerous opportunities to volunteer and make a significant impact on your student and others. Some examples of the opportunities available follow:

Fall Festival Fundraiser: The annual Fall Festival offers families carnival games, a silent auction, bake sale, karaoke, crafts and typical midway treats and games during an afternoon of fun and fellowship on the SouthLake Christian campus. Funds from the event contribute to Lower School enhancements.

Book Fair: A Fall Book Fair features books, games and educational toys from Christian and educational booksellers. Profits from Book Fair sales contribute to library improvements.

Room Parents: Coordinate in-class activities, parties, support field trips programs and additional needs as directed by each teacher.

"...We are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." II Corinthians 10:5

"The Mission of SouthLake Christian Academy is twofold. The first is to assist the Christian family by providing an education marked by a biblical worldview, academic excellence and affordability so that students are equipped to be salt and light for God's glory. The second is evangelical in scope, to present God's Word and biblical worldview daily to non-believers with the promise of God's redemptive plan, to be a force and voice for Jesus Christ that will resonate throughout non-believing families."
