Parent Association

A thriving parent body lies at the heart of the Catherine Cook School experience.

The Catherine Cook Parent Association (PA) assists our parent body by building a sense of community and providing a strong communication link between the parent body and the school. The PA seeks to foster positive relationships between parents and the school's administration, faculty, staff, and trustees. Every parent or guardian of a Catherine Cook student is automatically a voting member of the Parent Association.

The PA sponsors many all-school events and external volunteer opportunities. It also holds monthly meetings, to which all parents and guardians are invited. These meetings are an excellent way to meet fellow parents, learn how to get involved, and find out what's happening in the school.
