Welcome to the Parent Association

Our mission is to create connections between parents and build community, foster communication, and support the efforts of Beaver’s faculty, staff, and administration in enhancing the education of your child.

Working in concert with the school, the Parent Association (PA) seeks to foster a warm, welcoming and inclusive community for all Beaver families. As a Beaver parent or guardian, you are a member of the PA and invited to monthly meetings as well as a wide variety of events, both social and educational. If you haven’t done so already, we invite you to learn more about the Beaver Parent Association.

We value harnessing the ideas, passion, and talents of parents in our school community and welcome you to contact us to discuss how you might be involved in a way you find meaningful. 

For some parents, that means volunteering their time; for others, it simply means staying in touch and knowing what is happening on campus. Contribute on a short-term or long-term basis, during the day, evening or weekend, from home or at school. If you would like a calendar and detailed description of each opportunity; its purpose, activities, and who to contact to learn more, please contact us or one of your grade parent representatives.

Looking forward to connecting for a rich and interesting school year!
