Our membership drive is a major source of funding for the school year. The membership drive funds our directory and supports key initiatives including cultural assemblies, the Father-Daughter Dance, Mother-Son Event, Family Movie Night, Field Trips & more. The more successful our membership drive is, the less we will need to ask for funds throughout the school year. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

First Meeting: Wednesday, September 18 at 7-8pm
