Grace Art is a supplementary art program funded by the PTA and presented by parent volunteers in each classroom once a month.  If you would like to volunteer with our Grace Art PTA, please get in contact with your child's teacher.  No experience necessary!

Parent Volunteers 

  • Volunteers are essential to the success of Fairfax County Public Schools. Many enriching and worthwhile experiences are afforded to our children through the volunteer help from parents.  With this support, teachers are able to provide more direct instruction. 
  • Parents interested in volunteering time and services are requested to contact the PTA volunteer coordinator and the classroom teacher. Please remember when you are coming to volunteer this is not a time that teachers are able to meet with you. If you have a concern that you wish to discuss with your child’s teacher please arrange a time for a meeting through e-mail or a phone call.
  • Volunteers are strongly discouraged from bringing younger children with them when volunteering. Volunteers bringing very young children with them are usually not able to adequately focus on the educational process for which they volunteered. There simply are too many distractions for them, for their very young children, as well as for our students, for much meaningful education to take place.
