PA Committees

Standing Committees The Parent Association relies on the work of many volunteers to implement its programs and events each year. Committees are formed each year, as needed, to support the goals and objectives for the year. Each committee is led by at least one chairperson and is made up of volunteers from the greater Parent Association body.
