The Episcopal School of Dallas greatly benefits from the time, love, and support from our parents. We are so glad you are a part of our community.
Below, you will find upcoming parent events, details about each of our parent organizations, ways to get involved with the community, and more. Thank you for all you do to make ESD special - most importantly, entrusting ESD to provide the very best education for your child.
Building Community Through Parent Involvement: The variety of volunteer opportunities through our various Parent Organizations (PA, Dads’ Partnership, Booster Club, Fine Arts Network) make it possible for parents with different schedules, interests, and talents to participate in the life of the school. Whether a one-time or ongoing commitment, every contribution is needed and valued. ESD encourages parent involvement and it is fundamental to ESD’s mission.
