Parents’ Association


Welcome to the K–8 Parents’ Association

The Parents’ Association is a volunteer organization of parents that is dedicated to enhancing the community for students, faculty and parents. All Parents are members of the Parent Association which is funded primarily by your annual dues and Swap-It. Our mission is to welcome new families, keep parents informed about what’s happening, provide opportunities to get together with fellow parents and offer meaningful and relevant programs for our community. The PA hosts regular open meetings and speakers for K–8 parents as well as a number of community service and social events throughout the academic year. Please join us at our meetings or volunteer to help! Email for more information.
