CDS parent helps students with volunteer art project

Throughout our rich history spanning nearly 50 years, Community Day School has relied on the generosity of our community to ensure that we achieve our mission. There are countless ways to make a difference at CDS. You can join our Parent Association or Grandparent Association; help enhance our beautiful campus as a member of our Green Team; read a story to Pre-K or kindergarten students; participate in a phone-a-thon; chaperone a field trip; volunteer in our front office, help coach in our Little Lions sports program; pack Purim baskets, and much more!

Volunteer Clearances Policy

In October 2014, the PA Legislature adopted Act 153 of 2014 requiring background checks for volunteers. Under this law and our school policy, any unpaid volunteer who is individually responsible for the welfare of one or more children―or has direct contact with children―must complete required clearances.

For practical purposes, we strongly recommend that ALL parents complete their volunteer clearances so they are free to participate in any classroom or school event.
