The King Parents’ Association (PA) is a dynamic organization that plays a vital role in our School community. The organization depends and thrives on the active participation of parent volunteers who sponsor a variety of projects and programs designed to support King's Mission by:
- Improving and enhancing the educational experience of the students
- Helping create a spirit of community
- Facilitating communication
- Supporting administrative and Faculty needs
The PA serves as a general advocate for the parent body and facilitates communication between parents and the School through general membership meetings. The PA will hold its General Meetings for all members three times per year in September, January and May.
