On behalf of the Providence Academy Parent Association (PAPA), I wish to extend a warm welcome to you and your family as we prepare to start the 2019-2020 school year! Our primary method for communicating with families will be this weekly e-Bulletin where volunteer needs are highlighted. In addition, volunteer opportunities are listed on the school’s website where you can easily sign-up via links to the event’s SignUp Genius page.
PAPA strives to help build community within the school while supporting the faculty and staff. One great way to build and strengthen relationships with other parents is through our annual grade-level Parent Parties. Please consider hosting your grade level Parent Party this year. Sign up for your grade level here. Be sure to check the Volunteer page often throughout the year; new opportunities are added regularly!
