Volunteer Opportunities at BES

Beaches Episcopal School has a full calendar of events and programs designed to make our school the best it can be. Our parents and grandparents are so generous with their time and energy - but we always have room for more helping hands.  The Parent Support Organization (PSO) is a great way to become involved in your children's school and meet other BES parents. We invite you to get involved during the 2016-2017 school year and promise it is time well spent!

If you have any questions, please contact Stacy Nash, Director of Development, at 246-2466, Ext. 112. We look forward to another great year at BES! 

Parent Support Organization Fundraisers for the 2016-2017 School Year

In addition to traditional Beaches Episcopal School fundraisers, the Parent Support Organization (PSO) conducts various fundraising events throughout the school year. Many events and activities our students benefit from are provided by the PSO. These include the Fine Arts Programs, a $10,000 teacher wish-list, guest speakers, Teacher Appreciation Luncheon, and so much more.



Important: Please email Sarah Zak if you are interested in a specific event, or would like to be on a committee. Otherwise, please participate by signing up for different events throughout the year when you receive a Signup Genius email.

Which courses do I take?

Meet Sam. 

Sam is a sex offender. In this course, he tells you how he gets away with it—in programs just like yours. You learn the types of sexual abusers and the methods they use to get their own needs met. You also learn how to spot interactions between adults and children that may indicate danger. (.5 CEUs) 

It Happened to Me

In this course, you hear children and adults describe the devastating effects abuse has had on their lives. You learn about the prevalence of abuse and specific characteristics that may put some children at higher risk of abuse. (.5CEUs)

Keeping Your Church Safe

Children come to us throughout the day, week after week, month after month, year after year. They expect to learn about God, have fun, make friends, practice skills, and grow in faith. They expect to be safe. In this course, you will learn when and where abuse is most likely to occur in church programs, the steps you can take to keep children safe, and how you can protect yourself from false allegations of abuse. (.5CEUs) 

Diocese of Florida Policies

This course outlines our policies relevant to the prevention of abuse. To complete the course, you must indicate that you have read, understand, and agree to comply with these policies.
