The Junior Academy Parents Association (PA) is a voluntary group of active and dedicated parents. Our main focus is fundraising to benefit the students experience at school and organizing social events to enable parents to interact and become engaged in the life of the school.
Funds raised are used to enhance school programs and activities that will provide additional opportunities for our children to grow and succeed.
Recent initiatives have included the purchase of software and technology resources, author visits to the classrooms, equipment for the Phys-Ed department, and new furniture for the school library.
Members of the PA also help organize the back-to-school BBQ, used uniform sale, a ‘wine and cheese’ at the holiday and spring concerts, the annual Valentine’s Bake Sale, the Scholastic Book Fair, and our year end Fun Fair.
We always welcome new parents to our group. We meet the first Wednesday of each month in the library at 8:30 a.m. If you are interested in joining or helping us out, please contact the main office.
Junior Academy hosts Parent Information Nights every other month on topics that are important to our families. Such topics as Technology in the Home, Collaborative and Proactive Solutions, and Strength Based Programming have been a part of this series. These evenings are a great way for families to connect and learn from each other.
