Being an effective parent takes tremendous wisdom, sacrifice, and prayer. Parenting can be overwhelming, daunting, and stretching. Commencing Wednesday, September 11th, Desert Chapel Church will be offering a parenting class and study open to all parents. The series entitled, “Parenting: The Early Years,” features teaching by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott. Please plan to join us as we strive
to be impactful parents for our children. The study will take place in the church sanctuary at 6:30 p.m.

Volunteering
We are so grateful for our parent volunteers. Please coordinate your volunteer opportunities through Mrs. Coombs (Elementary office) and Mrs. Behrend (MS/HS office), as we try to provide every opportunity to fulfill your required volunteer hours. Please do not make changes to your volunteer times and positions without first checking with the school office, so that scheduled parents are able to fulfill their pre-arranged commitments. Thank you.
