Once a student is enrolled at The Meadows School, their parent is automatically a member of The Meadows School Parents Association (TMSPA.)
TMSPA plays an essential role in the life of The Meadows School. The goal of the organization is to facilitate a closer interest and communication between every parent and the school. TMSPA provides opportunities for the parent body to participate in a variety of roles, acts as a resource for the school, and organizes special projects.
TMSPA also serves as a resource to classroom teachers, organizes community service programs, and supports the library, admissions, performing arts, development, and hospitality, in addition to a multitude of other programs and events. Involvement in TMSPA facilitates parents’ connection to each other and to The Meadows.
Parents Association Events and Volunteer Opportunities
TMSPA also offers activities and volunteer opportunities that enhance our sense of community at The Meadows School. TMSPA is governed by an executive board that meets monthly and is supported by several committees.
Three events directly benefit the operations of TMSPA. The funds raised at these events are then donated back to the school by way of wish list items, teacher appreciation events, hospitality for divisional coffees and special functions, and gifts for faculty and staff. The Fall Festival in October, the Camp Expo in March, and the Fiesta Carnival in May are wonderful ways to get involved. Here are some ways you can participate:
- Volunteer to run a booth
- Donate gift-in-kind items
- Serve on the planning committee
In addition to these events, you can help by volunteering for a TMSPA committee, including:
- All-School Reception
- Booster Club
- Community Action
- Faculty Luncheons
- Used Uniforms
- Lower School Buddy and Middle and Upper School Welcoming
- Parent Receptions
- Class Representatives
We encourage all parents new and old to the Meadows to find an area they are passionate about and volunteer! For more information on how to get involved, please email TMSPA@themeadowsschool.org.
