More PA Events & Activities


Parent Reps for Grades & Clusters

As liaisons between parents, the PA and the administration, cluster/grade parents are encouraged to attend PA meetings to keep up-to-date on school activities and issues, contribute to the planning of special events, and welcome new parents.

Grade & Cluster Parent Reps are responsible for communicating with the group about PA issues. New parents are encouraged to contact their grade reps or the officers of the PA with any questions.

Parent Forums

Parent Forums, sponsored by the Parents Association, focus on educational, developmental, behavioral and family issues. Guest speakers may include members of the school community or outside experts.

The Annual Tea

Towards the end of the school year, the PA honors all faculty, administration and staff. Guests enjoy refreshments and decorations prepared by volunteers, followed by special presentations honoring employees for their landmark years of service (5, 10, 15, 20 and 25+ years).

Welcome Back Picnics

Welcome back picnics are held each year in Riverside Park during the first week of school for families of 3's-2nd graders and 3rd-5th graders.

Student Portraits & Cluster/Grade Photographs

Individual portraits and cluster/grade photographs are taken in Calhoun’s Lower and Middle School each year by a professional photography and offered for purchase. This service is provided to parents by the Parents Association; it is not a fundraiser.

Community Outreach

The Parents Association is affiliated with a number of local organizations that support independent school families, including JSA, The Parents League, Parents in Action, Riverside Park and Central Park.
