Attend an Event!

Parent organizations sponsor great events like Ice Cream Socials, Family Movie/Fun/Bingo Night or Carnivals. These events are a great way to meet new friends and enjoy some time with your kids. Be sure to check the calendar on your school website regularly! Notices for all events may also come home in your child's backpack on your school newsletter.

Get Involved!

Research shows that children whose parents are involved get better grades, do better on tests, and have fewer discipline problems in school. Parent organizations offer lots of opportunities for parents to get involved. Do a little, do a lot - just do something!

Contact Info

Please contact your building administration with any questions you have about the parent organization at your school.
