The mission of the Parents' Association at Ravenscroft School is to assist in the promotion of excellence for the Ravenscroft community through active parent/guardian involvement.
On behalf of the Parents’ Association (PA), we’d like to welcome new and returning families to Ravenscroft for the 2018-19 school year! It is our sincere hope that you will enjoy and participate in the many offerings you and your children will be exposed to this year. Through the PA’s diverse array of events, fundraisers and other community-building activities, we support our mission and complement Ravenscroft’s Lead From Here initiative.
One of the primary goals of the PA is to create opportunities for parents, students, faculty and staff to have fun and engage with one another. We are fortunate to have a strong, supportive parent base to make these programs possible. We welcome your involvement and participation in any number of ways. Please feel free to join us, make suggestions and be creative! If you’re interested in becoming more involved in the PA, please take a minute to fill out the PA Interest Form.
When we were asked to serve as PA co-presidents, we were honored — the honor is entirely based on the opportunity to work with this community. Ravenscroft is a school infused with incredible talent, great spirit and a strong academic foundation. We are lucky, as we will get to spend the year working with so many amazing parents! And we’ll have fun supporting important programs for our students, faculty and staff.
When you have a moment, please look through this Save-the-Date information and make a note of our upcoming meetings and special events. Remember, as a Ravenscroft parent, YOU are a member of the PA, and we would love to see you whenever your schedule permits. Please reach out to us, or to any of our Steering Committee members, at any time! We invite you to join us!
Looking forward to the year ahead!
