Ways to Help

Become a Room Parent

Would you like to be a room parent for your child’s class? We need at least one room parent for each class, but two or three would be even better. In this position, you would occasionally help with a classroom event, help with picture day, and help with the school fundraiser in the spring. It’s a fun way to meet other parents and an easy and rewarding volunteer job that really helps our school. If you can pitch in, please email us at [email protected]. Thank you.

Join the Board of Directors

Are you interested in becoming more involved with the school next year? If so, please consider joining the Dolley Madison Board which is comprised of school parents and whose responsibility is to oversee many of the programs that make our school the great place it is! The Board of Directors meets one evening per month and most members commit to at least two years of service. The many rewards of serving on the Board include additional involvement in our school and learning more about early childhood education as well as speech and language development issues. We accept new members every and welcome various levels of commitment.


If you are interested in serving on the Board, please email [email protected] or stop by the school office and ask for a Board information packet. The packet includes further material regarding the role of the board director and a personal information form to complete and return to the office.

Shop with AmazonSmile

We all shop Amazon all the time because it’s so convenient and they truly have it all – but did you know that you can designate an organization to receive a percentage of your purchases (from Amazon) through AmazonSmile? If you would like to choose Dolley Madison as the recipient of this donation, please log onto smile.amazon.com and look for the Speech and Language Center of Northern Virginia, Inc., (SLCNV), the umbrella organization under which Dolley Madison was founded. Every time you make a purchase, large or small, Amazon will make a donation to our school – which can really add up!

Consider a Donation

The money we raise for our school helps to bridge the gap between operating expenses and tuition income and helps support your child’s education through supplying classroom materials, special enrichment programs, and faculty professional development. Please consider making a cash donation to Dolley Madison to support our school and take advantage of year-end tax deductions.


We welcome any donations from parents for our Annual Fundraiser including cash, merchandise, gift cards, or specialty services. We thank you for supporting your child’s school!
