Volunteering for Solebury

The Solebury Home and School Association offers a variety of opportunities where you can get involved and volunteer your time to support the Solebury School community. 

By helping out on any of the various committees including Spring Dinner Auction, Athletic Boosters, Friends of the Visual Arts, Friends of the Theater, Beautification and Hospitality you are sure to meet other parents, make new friends, get better acquainted with the wonderful faculty and staff and help make Solebury the best school it can be. 

There is sure to be a committee that you will find appealing. To fit each parent’s busy schedule you can be involved as little or as much as you like. Any amount of involvement is appreciated and there is no membership fee. 

Please take the time to review the description of volunteer opportunities, fill out the Volunteer Form and return it to the school. 

Hope you will join us - we look forward to working with you.


Thank you,
Carolyn Dorph, President
Solebury Home & School Association

 

Spring Dinner Auction

Spring Dinner Auction

The Solebury Dinner Auction is the Home & School Association’s main fundraiser for the year. Together we create a fun theme, organize a Silent and Live Auction and plan a wonderful dinner in our Athletic Center. Auction planning begins in the fall and is worked on throughout the year. There are many ways to get involved some include the following committees: Decorating, Acquisitions and Mailings.

Our auctions raise over $100,000 and the money benefits the entire school community. Last year’s Paddle Call (Special Appeal) which benefited for Solebury Sports and Activities raised over $40,000.

If you are interested in more information about how to get involved please contact Auction Coordinator, Holly Victor or Auction Chairman, Chuck Fitton.


We hope to hear from you!

Solebury School has a rich tradition of academic and athletic excellence. The Solebury School Athletic Booster Club members believe that academics and athletics go hand in hand for the success of our children.  The Booster Club is dedicated to the continued support of our student athletes, coaching staff, trainers, and athletic programs.

Our Mission

The mission of the Solebury School Booster Club is to:

  • Support athletic and academic excellence in all student athletes
  • Promote active and involved parent and community leadership
  • Promote sportsmanship and provide supplementary financial support to allSoleburySchoolathletic teams
  • Maintain our Spartan history and tradition of excellence, which exemplifies our student athletes, coaches, trainers and teams.

In addition, the Booster Club will work with administration, teachers, staff, parents, coaches and student athletes to identify areas of need within the athletic department. In this way we hope to assist in the continued development and support of Solebury Athletic Programs.

Fundraising

One of the critical functions of the Solebury School Booster Club will be fundraising. Some of the activities that we hope to initiate during the upcoming year include: a fall golf tournament and banquet, consistent operation of the athletic center concession stand, and pancake breakfasts.

Friends of Solebury Visual Arts

Friends of Solebury Visual Arts

In the Solebury Art Department, our very talented students spend hours creating many unique and beautiful works of art. The mission of the Friends of Solebury Visual Arts is to make these wonderful student pieces more visible throughout the campus. We will be assisting the Art Department with framing, canvas stretching, preparing art boards and exhibiting student artwork around campus. Please consider joining and helping out with art shows and other special events throughout the school year.

For more information and to get involved please contact Parent Coordinator, Jon Wiedorn (jwiedorn@verizon.net).

Beautification Team

Beautification Team

Solebury School is especially known for its beautiful campus in charming Bucks County, Pennsylvania. In order to maintain the campus, the Home & School Association has offered to assist the school’s maintenance department by helping with gardening and some light improvements like painting.

We annually plant fall mums and spring bulbs, assist in fall & spring cleanup, decorate for Open Houses and beautify the campus for Graduation. Some of the special projects we have completed are: the lovely stone half wall in front of the Dining Hall, the stone pathway and planting bed behind Administration Building including patio and furniture outside of Head of School’s office, refurbished the Theater dressing rooms and painted and landscaped outside of the Girl’s Dorm.

If you enjoy outside work and want to get involved in maintaining our beautiful campus please contact Beautification Team Coordinator, Chuck Fitton 

Helping Hands Team

Helping Hands Team

The Helping Hands Team offers assistance to Solebury families when special needs arise, such as illness or family emergencies. Once the coordinators become aware of an emergency situation they will rally a group of parent volunteers that will offer their help in any way they can, such as providing meals, or rides for the student.

Since families in emergency situations don’t always have the time to seek help, anyone in the Solebury community is welcome to contact our Parent Relations Coordinator, Holly Victor, if they know of a family who could use a Helping Hand.SoleburySchool is a great community of students, faculty, administrators and parents, and knowing that a Helping Hand is available in a time of need can be reassuring and comforting. We also understand that families may want their privacy in these situations, so our work will be discreet and confidential.

If you become aware of a family in need of help or having an emergency please contact our Parent Relations Coordinator, Holly Victor

If you would like to join our roster of volunteers please contact our Helping Hands Coordinator, Lori Jablonowski.
