As the link between families and the administration, faculty, and staff at McGillis, the Parent Association (PA) provides many opportunities for parents to volunteer and become involved with the community. There is a wide range of volunteer options available, depending on your time and flexibility.
When my eldest child first attended McGillis, I was so excited to be a part of this amazing community that I embraced the opportunity to be on the PA. The committee introduced me to the many special facets of the McGillis experience as well as the most amazing teachers, staff and parents. Being a part of the PA has helped create a school experience for my family that I will always be grateful for.

Parent Association Events – Zoom/In-Person
Parent Association events provide a forum for parents to become more involved with the community, through informal social gatherings, as well as administration-led discussions, and educational presentations.
This year we will be combining most of the monthly Coffee Klatch get togethers with PA-sponsored community conversations and speaker presentations, which were formerly called All PA meetings. We have also moved these events to Thursday mornings at 8:30am. The topics for the conversations will be communicated well in advance, if not already, so that you may plan ahead if you would like to attend.
