For the PA, It’s the Season of Gratitude

As the school year quickly winds down, the Parent Association focuses its time on transitions and, most importantly, gratitude.

From May 1 to May 5, the Parent Association will lead our community celebration of our faculty and staff. The Parent Association has planned activities throughout the week to show our gratitude for the important work faculty and staff do each and every day of the year. You can help us by signing up for a number of volunteer opportunities or by simply sending a note of appreciation. Let’s work together to make our appreciation heard!

We finish the year with our annual Parent Appreciation Breakfast. This end-of-year gathering is an opportunity to celebrate the many ways we all contribute to the CA community. Our parents have contributed to the community in so many different ways, and we want to celebrate you all. The Breakfast will also include a special tribute to parents whose final child is graduating from CA. Come join us in the Campus Center on May 11, at 8:00 a.m. 

Finally, as we finish the year, the Parent Association transitions to a new Executive Committee. Thank you to our committee members whose terms are ending: Lissa Cullen, Cate Cohen, Christina Joymon, Amy McPheeters, Lindsay Miller, Patrick Rodriguez, Marte Timmers, and Sarah West. Your contributions to the Executive Committee have helped strengthen our community and support our faculty and staff. 

A special thank you must be given to Jen Wolkon, outgoing President. Jen’s tireless positive energy, intense care for the PA’s mission, and inclusive personality have made serving on the Executive Committee a rewarding experience for all. We will miss her leadership, but look forward to having her serve as the chair of our Nominating Committee next year.
