Who We Are

About Parent Association (PA) Committees
The PA Executive Committee
The Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools each have two vice presidents (VPs) who serve on the PA Executive Committee along with the PA president and treasurer. 
Generally, the vice president position is a two-year rotating commitment. The main focus for the PA VPs is to make sure that there is open communication with Room Reps and all parents/guardians within their division. They are to be available to listen to parent/guardian concerns and needs and help guide them through the correct channels when issues arise. It’s also important that the VPs manage their division organization (e.g., room reps) by leading, coordinating, and setting the agenda for monthly room rep meetings.
 
Classroom Room Representatives in the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools
This group of parent volunteers is essential to the functioning of our school by helping classroom teachers and parents organize events ranging from field trips,dances, parent potlucks, and graduation ceremonies. Each grade level has appointed PA room representatives. There usually are three per grade and one serves as the “head room rep”. The head room rep is designated to facilitate communication with teachers, the division directors, and PA VPs. It is required that Room Reps attend all PA divisional meetings (usually monthly), coffees, and Brown Bag Lunches. The room reps coordinate community-building events such as Back-to-School Picnics, Parent Gatherings, Mom’s Night Out, Grade-level Coffees, School Day-Off Events, and an end-of-year event. Room reps are responsible for their grade-level budget and expense reports.
