We encourage parental involvement in education. Interested parents may participate in our school's Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) or Site Council.

Site Council volunteers share ideas and concerns regarding school policies and hold meetings on the third Wednesday of every month from 11:30 a.m. to noon in the 4–8 library.
