Making a difference on the Grades K-6 Campus.

Volunteers are a vital part of community life at Worthington Christian School, and opportunities abound for parents, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents, and friends to get involved. If you don’t find an opportunity that fits your skillset or schedule, let us know. We welcome your ideas.

Volunteers must complete a background check before serving.

Art Room Helper

Art Room Helpers assist with various tasks, including displaying art throughout the school, getting out and cleaning up supplies, and coming alongside the teachers and students as needed.

Contact Suzanne Homoelle or submit the Volunteer Interest Form to get involved.

Cafeteria Help

Do you have time to spare during the day and love interacting with the students and staff?  The cafeteria may be your spot!  Lower School volunteers help the younger students with opening packages, getting condiments for the students, and helping clean the tables between lunch lines.  The Upper School volunteers work beside the food service staff to help serve our students and staff as they come through the lunch line. Volunteers will need to be in place and trained before school starts. 

Contact Kathy Kramer or submit the Volunteer Interest Form to get involved.


DadLab is a group of Lower School dads who encourage one another to pursue intentional personal relationships with Jesus and their families. DadLab small groups meet five to six times per track, weekly or monthly. This group also coordinates Dads and Doughnuts. 

Contact Coordinator Matt Kliewer or submit the Volunteer Interest Form to get involved.

Dads and Doughnuts | Fall & Spring

What better way to connect with other dads than over coffee and a doughnut? This event, which occurs in the fall and spring, is set aside to share with your child and other dads and to challenge your growth as a father and Christian leader in your family. It has two separate morning gatherings for sons and daughters. 

Contact Coordinator Jason Carroll or submit the Volunteer Interest Form to get involved.

Grandparents Day | October 18, 2024 

Do you have a special place in your heart for making memories for our students with their grandparents?  Then we’d love your help creating a special day for the grandparents or special friends in our children’s lives.  Volunteer help includes decorating, working with staff on activities specific to Grandparents Day, setting up refreshments and maintaining photo area help, and managing the day’s activities.

Marmon Valley Friendship Girls Weekend and Warriors Boys and Dads Weekend

This weekend is geared toward getting out in God’s creation, spending time with friends and family, and creating bonds. The coordinator’s role for this weekend is simple: scheduling horseback riding, assigning cabins, and greeting WC families as they arrive. A coordinator is needed for first through third-grade boys and fourth through sixth-grade boys.

Contact Suzanne Homoelle (boys) or Emily Watts or Crystal Ratliff (girls) or submit the Volunteer Interest Form to get involved.

Moms and Muffins | Fall & Spring

New for the 2024-25 school year! This event is just like Dads and Doughnuts but with moms! This is a great committee if you have a heart for gathering other moms and their children for a special time together. While enjoying a breakfast treat and refreshment, this will be a time to gather with purposeful conversation and speakers to uplift you. 

Contact Co-Coordinators Tiffany Beskid and Taylor Underwood or submit the Volunteer Interest Form to get involved.

Prayer Walk | Before School Begins

What better way to start the school year off than blessing our school by praying for our teachers, students, and staff for the upcoming school year?  Volunteer help on this committee would include leading a group of parents to pray for each building, room, and person that will enter our schools this year.  Opportunities to serve as the coordinator, on the planning committee, or help on event day are available.

Contact Christina Yeary or submit the Volunteer Interest Form to get involved.

Praying Parents

This group is open to any Lower School parents who want to pray over the school, the students, and the staff in each building. Please join us on the second Monday of each month from 8:45 to 9:45 a.m. in the Auditorium on the K-2 Campus. 

Contact Co-Coordinators Christen Shore or Heather Stanek or submit the Volunteer Interest Form to get involved.

Room Parents

Room parents are needed for each classroom.  Tasks include planning holiday parties, helping with special events in the classroom, and communicating with fellow parents about classroom needs. A parent may only serve as a Room Parent for one classroom, and assignments are not made until after class lists are posted. A volunteer meeting is held at the beginning of the year to gain more information. 

Contact Suzanne Homoelle or submit the Volunteer Interest Form to get involved.

Speech Meet

The ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) Speech Meet is a much-anticipated annual event. Numerous judges and coaches are needed.

Stay and Play | August-October and March-May

Are you interested in fostering relationships with other parents?  This committee is responsible for scheduling and attending K-6 Stay and Plays, held after school during the fall and spring months.  This is a low-commitment committee if you are interested in involvement but can’t commit too much time. 

Contact Coordinator Ashley Wilshire or submit the Volunteer Interest Form to get involved.

Veteran’s Day | November 11, 2024

Do you feel passionate about showing our veterans appreciation for their sacrifice while teaching our children the importance of these sacrifices, understanding the history, and the love for our country?  Then we would love your help in making this day memorable.  Tasks will include finding Veterans to include in the day, helping with activities, managing the flow of the day’s events, decorating, and working with staff on activities specific to Veterans Day.
