We are a non-profit organization and all our members are volunteers. Everyone such as parents, teachers, administrators, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and members of the community are welcome join us. You can share your thoughts and ideas and get involved. It is a great way to find out what is happening at our schools, meet other parents, and enrich your child’s educational experience. Although we encourage you to come to our meetings, we appreciate volunteers for whatever you are available to help with.

We meet on the second Tuesday of each month in the elementary school library. Our meeting times for the 2019-2020 school year are as follows: September 10 6pm, October 8 3:30pm, November 12 6pm, December 10 3:30pm, January 14 6pm, February 11 3:30pm, March 10 6pm, April 14 3:30pm, May 12 6pm. Childcare will be provided during the 3:30pm meetings.
