Join the Grandparents Association!

Our mission is to provide generational support to our grandchildren at Dunham and their parents, our children. We serve the school with our time, our prayers, and our finances and other resources in gratitude for the contribution it is making in the lives of our families and to the greater community. We want to leave a legacy of Christian faith and principles as the centerpiece of our heritage, and we believe this can be accomplished through enabling the school to continue providing excellent education in a Christian atmosphere. Each year, grandparents are needed to help in the following areas:

  • Pray Dunham (meets the first Friday of every month at 8 am in the chapel)
  • Concessions at athletic events
  • Lower School reading
  • Grandparents Annual Giving Campaign
  • Dunham Carnival
  • Middle and Upper School Grandparents Day
  • Lower School Grandparents Chapel Day
