The Parent Association’s (PA) mission is to encourage parent/guardian involvement, raise money, and give voice to parent opinion in the school community. The PA organizes events, builds volunteerism in the school community, and works closely with the administration, teachers, and parents to support the school’s goals and priorities. And to ensure that our children receive the best, most well-rounded educational experience that effectively prepares them for high school and beyond.
As parents and guardians of children attending New Voices, you are automatically PA members. There are myriad ways to become involved. Every ounce of volunteerism improves the school tenfold! Consider joining the PA Board.
Volunteering for School Events
New Voices has regular events that need parent volunteers to be successful such as school dances, book fairs, tour and audition days for incoming students, and many more. Volunteering is a fun and extremely valuable way to contribute to the school and meet our kids, other parents and school staff. Your time and efforts given to any New Voices endeavor are greatly appreciated! To join the volunteering mailing list, contact: Helen Lee.
Volunteering on Committees
Consider leading or starting a PA committee!
The website shares information across the school community. But it needs regular oversight to stay current! We need at two people who will be responsible for maintaining the site.
Grant Writing Committee
There are lots of grant opportunities for schools. And New Voices has won a few. Help us to win more! Good writing and research skills are helpful…but even better, diligence!
This committee oversees the PA’s standard fundraising events (from bake to book sales) and also launches creative new ways to get the money we need to build up the school
At every performance and other school events, the PA sells food, beverages, snacks, and PA gear to raise funds for New Voices. We need volunteers to keep the concession closet full!
