Grandparent Engagement Opportunities

JOIN US!

At Far Hills, we value the many roles grandparents play in our community and we welcome their participation. Here are some of the ways you can help...

Grandparent Curriculum Enrichment

Do you have a current/former career, special hobby or interest you would like to share? Do you have a unique historical perspective or cultural background? Have you traveled extensively? Our teachers would love to know, if so. We welcome special guests with first-hand experiences to enrich our curriculum. It’s wonderful to have grandparents share their knowledge and experiences with our students.

Volunteering

Does reading to children, gardening or serving as a host or organizer for a grandparent event appeal to you? Would you enjoy participating in ballroom dance class with your grandchild? The possibilities are many and happen throughout year. Join us by letting us know how you would like to participate.

Fundraising and Friendraising

Are you interested in having fun while participating in one of our exciting fundraisers to support your grandchild(ren)’s school? Join us for a round of golf at our Golf Classic, take a shift to volunteer and/or shop for the holidays at our annual Book Fair or participate in our Trick or Trot Carnival. We also welcome donations to our silent and/or live auctions. We also need grandparents who are willing to make calls to thank others for their Annual Fund support or to sign our Annual Fund appeal letter to encourage others to participate. Whatever you choose, we welcome your participation in support of our students and teachers.

If you are interested in any of the above, please fill out this online form or call the Development Office at 908-766-8424.
