Grade Parents

At the heart of the PTA are our Grade Parents, connecting Parents with Teachers and families with each other. (In Secondary School, students have multiple teachers, so we rely on “Grade Parents” instead of “Room Parents,” as we did in the Elementary programs.) Grade Parents are the liaison between the PTA Leadership Team and each family unit in their grade. They help recruit volunteers, foster social connections and parent engagement, and support student-led initiatives. They share information that parents need to know. And they help with Teacher Appreciation, such as collecting contributions for teacher (and support staff) holiday and year-end gifts. They also support PTA fundraising efforts, especially those that are specific to their grade (such as After-Prom). Grade Parents must attend at least one PTA meeting per month. If you are interested in learning more, please contact us.

After Prom

After-Prom is led by parent volunteers and funded through the PTA. This event provides a safe, inclusive, alcohol and drug-free alternative for our high school students at a very special and important time in their lives. The event is a huge success with nearly 100% of the prom attendees joining in the after prom fun. After-Prom features blackjack and roulette tables, laser tag, silent disco, team games and competitions, pizza, snacks, breakfast and incredible prizes! Attendees receive a team t-shirt and the chance to win amazing prizes donated by our local businesses and families.
