Parent Association

“Many hands make light work.”
--John Heywood

The work of the Parent Association happens only through the support of our family community. 
There is room for everyone to make a positive impact on school life. Big or small, once or all year long, EVERY effort is valued. We warmly invite you to get involved in a way that works for you.
See you at the school!

  • Self-Directed Involvement

    We get that many parents just can’t swing the traditional path to support (conflicting work hours, younger kids, other commitments, etc.). But we would love to involve you in a way that works for you, so let’s be creative about it. For instance:
    • Send in goods for events
    • Do work at home (data entry, emailing, organizing, etc.)
    • Share special resources or skills (photography, graphic design, printing, large format printer, floral design, etc.)
