Parents

Advent Parents Association (APA)

PURPOSE
The APA (ADVENT PARENT ASSOCIATION) is a vital component of the fabric of our school. This organization functions as a support mechanism for all that our school is trying to accomplish. Committees are formed to facilitate functionality while monthly meetings provide the common understanding regarding overall function within the school. Fundraising elements provide critical support to meet needs in addition to tuition as tuition alone does not meet overall needs of the school. 

The APA was formed by merging two former parent organizations, the AEAE (Advent Episcopal Association for Education) and the APO (Advent Parent Organization.) The APA works to provide a clear understanding of the needs of the school and ways parents can partner with the school to meet these essential needs. The Chair for 2016-2017 Anne Lynn Langloh. Committees will set up their own schedules. Monthly meetings will take place the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 in the Refectory. Morning care will be free these mornings for those in attendance that do not normally use this service.

MEMBERSHIP
All families are invited to join APA and are encouraged to participate in the activities organized by the APA.
