College Preparatory School for Girls Grades 3-12

Parents Association

Welcome to the Parents Association, a group to which all Holton-Arms parents belong. Each school year, enthusiastic parents come together through the Parents Association to actively support the Holton-Arms community. It's fun, the girls appreciate it, and you will likely make lifelong friends! We hope that you find a way to join with us as we build on the special place that is Holton-Arms.

About the Parents Association

The Parents Association supports and enhances the school community through programs and activities involving parents, students, faculty, and staff. It also provides an open, ongoing two-way communication channel between the parents and administration of the School which benefits the School as well as the parents.

The Parents Association sponsors a number of activities and encourages parents to become involved in the planning, execution, and enjoyment of each one.

The Executive Committee, elected at the Annual Meeting, manages the organization with assistance from two or three Grade Representatives from each grade. The Grade Reps work closely with the Division Director and, particularly in Lower School, classroom teachers to plan grade-related events and assist the students in classroom related activities. Committee chairs are appointed by the President and provide leadership for various events and interest groups throughout the School.
