Parents' Association

Parents' Association

One of The Orchard School’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. The Orchard School has an active Parents’ Association comprised of all Orchard parents and led by an executive board. The Parents’ Association (the “PA”) supports both the school and the parent community by organizing events and activities focused on community building. The PA hosts the family-oriented Fall Festival, The Orchard School Day of Service/Earth Day, Teacher-Staff Appreciation days, The Orchard School Auction and concession stands at sporting events for fundraising.
