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!
