Events & Volunteer Opportunities

Show your passion for our school by volunteering through the Parents' Community! No matter your talents, interests or time, there's an opportunity for you to get involved. We'd love to hear from you!


Griffin Games

Twice each year, once in the fall and once in the spring, the Parents' Community puts on a fun event in support of our Griffin athletes for an afternoon or evening of fun, food, festivities and FANS!


Fall Festival

Fall Festival is an epic family fun night at SDS! The Parents' Community, the Junior Class and student government team up to put on an awesome night of food, fun and games on the soccer fields and Dorrance Plaza. Get ready for a cookout, inflatables, carnival games, face-painting and more!  Parent volunteers are needed for setup, monitoring and cleanup of game area.


Bake Sales

Twice a year we host the tastiest event at SDS! All are welcome to contribute delectable baked goods and/or just stop by to purchase a few delicious treats! The sales are conveniently held just before Thanksgiving and Easter so parents and faculty can stock up for special events. 


Book Fair

Our Parents' Community loves to support our local community! Our annual book fair is held at the Hub City Book Store in downtown Spartanburg each November. It's a wonderful opportunity to stock up on great book titles while also supporting SDS.


Spirit Wear

Spirit wear promotions and sales occur during the school year. You can help by purchasing spirit wear and volunteering to help plan and promote this great program!


Retail Rewards

The BoxTops for Education program is great way to support the school by purchasing products with the BoxTops symbol. Twice a year, volunteers are needed to help in the collection and counting of Box Tops.


Celebration & Auction

This super fun event and auction is a Parents' Community fundraiser every spring. We always choose a great theme, and parents and faculty are invited to browse a myriad of silent and live auction items while enjoying food, music and spirits. 


Grandparents & Special Friends Day

Each spring, Lower School students invite grandparents and special friends to campus for a performance and a peek into classrooms. The Parents' Community always supports this special event by providing performance decorations, arranging for snacks and whatever else may be needed to welcome our important visitors to campus.


Lower & Middle Spring Art Shows

Spartanburg Day School is a unique and wonderful place where the arts take center stage and are greatly respected for the important role the arts play in the lives of each of our students – and in turn our community.

Parent volunteers are called on each year to help with the Lower School and Middle School art shows each spring – no art skills required! Opportunities include helping to:

  • Prepare artwork for show.
  • Help hang and install art.
  • Supply beverages/food for our show.
  • Help uninstall the show.  


Teacher Appreciation

Our teachers are the cornerstone of our students' success! Each year we celebrate our faculty by honoring them with a luncheon and gifts to show how much they mean to us.



This is an exciting time for Seniors and we want to make their experience a memorable one. Volunteers are needed to help make this day special for our graduating class.
