THE BRIDGES ACADEMY PARENTS' ASSOCIATION
Commitment & Collaboration
What is the Parents’ Association?
Did you know that EVERY PARENT is a member of the Parents’ Association?
Did you know that EVERY EVENT relies virtually on the support of our parent volunteers?
The Parents’ Association (“The PA”) mission is to help foster the academic and cultural environment of The Bridges Academy students. The PA organizes a series of student-centered events to help enrich the students’ education while having fun including assemblies, special speakers, field trips and sporting days. We also host events throughout the year where parents have the opportunity meet each other and mingle while fundraising to support the school. The PA funds raised each school year are an essential part of the school budget. In the past, The PA has funded new curriculum material, technology, facility upgrades, school supplies, as well as other exciting projects for the students. The parents working together at The PA events creates a sense of community among the faculty, staff, families, and students. The Bridges Academy and The PA welcome the involvement of EVERY parent in our school.
