Parents' Association

Parents' Association

Christa Adkins, PA President
One of Orchard’s staples is “Parents as Partners”, and the involvement of families is part of the foundation that helps our children, our school and our community thrive. Orchard has an active Parents Association comprised of all Orchard parents and led by a PA executive board, which has been working hard all year to ensure rich and plentiful opportunities for you to become engaged in ways that are meaningful, manageable and enjoyable to your family as well as meaningful to Orchard. Whether you are most excited about in-school volunteer opportunities, involvement in school fundraising, or events focused on education and community building, or if you prefer opportunities to help from home on your own schedule, there are great opportunities waiting for you. I look forward to working alongside you this year!

Christa Adkins, PA President
