The Country Day community includes an exceptional network of parents who are an integral part of our school. They support our students through the generosity of their time and resources, and help strengthen student programs, build community, and provide additional support through fundraising. In addition, we believe in cultivating a community of life-long learners, including parents.
Every year, hundreds of parents volunteers donate thousands of hours of their time for the benefit of our students and teachers. The impact of our volunteers’ contributions is immeasurable and greatly appreciated. There are many opportunities to volunteer and get involved at Country Day for both working and non-working parents.
Country Day Fund
Volunteers work in collaboration with the Advancement Office to connect with all members of the Country Day community to encourage broad-based support for the school’s top giving priority—the Country Day Fund. Through their leadership, ideas, and personal outreach efforts, Country Day Fund volunteers help to ensure the success of each campaign in fulfilling the school’s annual budgetary needs.

Parent Support Groups
Parent support groups allow parents to connect with our school community in a variety of ways and support our students through the generosity of their time and resources. They work to strengthen student programs, build community, and do some fundraising that supports extras.
Sandra Raymore and James Roberts, both physicians, are the proud parents of triplets William, Jeffrey, and Rachel, Class of ’12—three very different people who each found a niche and thrived at Country Day. The couple continues to give generously of their time and resources to the school and has made an impact through their leadership. They helped found and lead the school’s POCIS organization and have served in leadership capacities on the Boosters Club. Sandra was a dedicated leader within the Parents’ Association, including serving a term as president. James still serves on the Board of Trustees. He is a cardiologist at Novant Heart and Vascular Institute, and the medical director of The Heartbright Foundation clinic. He has been instrumental in providing many Country Day graduates with internships at his free clinic.
Our children started first grade here because we were impressed with the academic structure. I began volunteering because I think it is important for children to see their parents active in the school community.
