Purpose
The purpose of the Parent Club is to encourage, facilitate, and ensure ongoing community building and fundraising.  The Parent Club helps fundraise approximately $110,000 annually to assist in covering the cost of operations and tuition. Family involvement in these activities and programs support the school’s mission and thriving community.
