At GUS, a student could know absolutely everything there is to know about a subject and it still wouldn’t be enough.
The Parents Association (PA) of Glen Urquhart School is an organization of parent volunteers dedicated to fostering communication between, and support for, the administration, faculty, students, and parents. It enables families to actively participate in their children’s education through coordinated efforts that support the educational program.
At Glen Urquhart School, parents are our partners in the education of students. Every day, parents are involved in a number of ways. For example, parents support GUS as:
- Volunteers in the classroom and library,
- Chaperones on experiential trips,
- Members of the PA, working on committees for events,
- Experts on various topics giving presentations to classes or the whole school,
- Production assistants and costume coordinators for school performances.
This active Parents Association at GUS raises funds to support the financial aid budget and teacher directed projects, works with volunteers to support the faculty and classroom projects, and organizes social events to help foster a sense of community among school families. Each homeroom has two room parents who also serve as representatives to the PA Executive Committee. Teachers work with room parents to organize support for field trips, class parties, and other activities. There is generally one Parents Association meeting a month during the school year, and all parents are encouraged to attend them.
