In this role, they will get to know students well and will be an important resource for families. They will work with advisors, school administration, and families around student accountability. Additionally, they will lead grade team meetings, develop grade-level programming, plan on-campus events, and coordinate field trips and social outings.

PARENT RECEPTIONS 
Parent receptions are on-campus gatherings to welcome parents to the start of a new school year. The receptions are meant to be an informal get-together by grade and will be held in the Rogers Room. Grade representatives organized a Sign-Up Genius for all parents to contribute food and beverages to share, so please expect an email a few weeks prior to your event from a parent in your grade. If you have any questions please contact Ellen Vaream, PA Co-Chair.
