Ben Lippen School

Get Involved

The continued success of Ben Lippen School depends heavily on the countless hours of prayer, generous financial contributions and endless energy of our parent volunteers. Everyone benefits when parents take an active role in praying, giving, and serving. These needs exist at every level, every classroom, campus and activity. Can Ben Lippen count you in this year?
Partnering for Excellence (PfE) is a year-round initiative of Ben Lippen School to stimulate dynamic and growing praying, giving, and serving partnerships with parents, alumni, and friends.The PfE Council brings together the leaders of existing and new praying, giving, and serving groups for the purposes of communication and collaboration.
Below is a list of volunteer organizations/committees and current contact information. This list is continually evolving as needs arise and many volunteer positions are not filled until the school year begins. Please do not hesitate to call the contact person or the school office for more information or to volunteer to head up an initiative.
