Mission Statement

To acquaint all parents more fully with the School, its programs, and its faculty. To act as a liaison among parents, faculty, and the administration. To provide a forum for the free interchange of ideas regarding the School's goals and opportunities common to the parents, their children, and the School. To support the School by building community among families through volunteer efforts, by assisting in such activities that may be deemed appropriate, and through raising funds for such use by the Association, as the Association shall determine.
