The key to our success is you: The parents of our students

Join a Committee
We have five PA committees, open to any and all parents. Time commitments vary, but are manageable and flexible.
About the PA
We are committed creating a PA that is supportive, actionable, and well-funded. As the key to our success is you—the parents of our first graders, kindergarten and Pre-K students—our goal is to have as many parents as possible actively involved.
All parents are welcome and encouraged to make their voice heard and participate in various ways, such as donating decorations, serving on PA committees, translating PA communications into other languages, or volunteering a few hours of time. No matter the contribution, it is valuable and appreciated.
This is our second year together, both as a school and a PA. So, it’s critical that we “get it right” and build a foundation that allows our PA to be effective and efficient year after year. With your partnership, we’re confident that we will be successful.
We look forward to getting to know you and your family,
Alix Boyle & Lauren Volkmer, Co- Presidents
