Many schools have a PTA or PTO, and here at Spring Garden we have Parent Council. The Parent Council serves as the voice of parents at our school and promotes community enrichment and communication between the faculty, Board, and the parent body at large.
Every two years, each class selects a parent to serve a two-year term as their representative on Parent Council. This parent attends the monthly Parent Council meetings and their three yearly class meetings, where they share information with their class about school wide events such as:
- Welcome Back Dinner
- Halloween Festival
- Children’s Festival
- Annual Auction class projects
- Parent Appreciation Party
- Coordinating the production of a yearbook
- Class gifts and outreach
- Minor fundraisers (Silver Graphics, etc.)
If you are interesting in serving on Parent Council, speak up at your first class meeting or contact the current President, Marina Rana, for more information.
