Parent Association

Our mission is to facilitate parent volunteer activities for the betterment of the school and its community.

 

FamiliesThe Parent Association promotes parent involvement in the school community by supporting teachers and staff along with organizing school activities and programs. It facilitates communication among parents, teachers and school administrators to explore issues of mutual interest, sponsors speakers on educational topics, and provides a structure for assisting the school with certain fundraising and social functions.

Parent Association Events and Activities
The Parent Association sponsors many events at the Meridian School that enrich, entertain and enlighten all members of the Meridian community. The Parent Association is also involved in school activities such as community service, and coordinates staff appreciation efforts throughout the year.

Parent Association Executive Committee
The Parent Association Executive Committee works together – and with the administration – to manage the Parent Association’s overall operations and budget. The Parent Association Executive Committee meets monthly to plan Parent Association events and activities, to monitor the budget, and discuss current issues related to the Meridian School community.
