Lower and Middle School Parents’ Associations


Welcome to the Lower School and Middle School Parents’ Associations

The Lower and Middle School Parents’ Associations are volunteer organizations of parents that are dedicated to enhancing the community for students, faculty and parents. Funded primarily by annual dues, all parents are members of the Parent Association. Our mission is to welcome new families, keep parents informed about what’s happening, provide opportunities to get together and offer meaningful and relevant programs for our community. The Parent Associations host regular open meetings and speakers as well as community and social events throughout the academic year. Please join us at our meetings or volunteer to help! Email miltonparentsassociation_ls@milton.edu or miltonparentsassociation_ms@milton.edu for more information.
