At Powhatan, parents play a fundamental role in supporting the mission and goals of the school through active and engaged participation. Every parent is a member of the Powhatan Parents Association, or PPA.
The PPA works to support and advance the mission of the school. The PPA recognizes and endeavors to foster the reciprocal relationship between the students, their families, and the school as well as the community at large. Parents, as partners, contribute to each of these constituencies by sharing their time, talents, resources, and knowledge. The PPA provides community building opportunities, supports fundraising events and educational programs, and provides volunteer support in many aspects of school life. The PPA encourages a spirit of inclusion and investment by advocating active participation. The PPA encourages every parent to become involved in this joint effort.
The goals of the PPA are to promote a closer relationship between the school community, to provide support for school functions, to foster the idea that volunteerism is an essential ingredient for the success of the school; and to respect and support the established policies and practices as set forth by the school.
A Leadership Team is elected annually, and are supported by an essential group of Committee Coordinators and support volunteers who manage and execute all of the programs.
If you are interested in joining the PPA, please contact our president, Lisa Haney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
