Parents Association


Welcome to the Parents Association (PA). We are proud to have such an amazing community of families who are passionate about supporting our school, students, faculty and staff. As a parent or guardian of an enrolled McLean School student you are automatically a member of the PA. Together we support a variety of events throughout the year ranging from festive celebrations and community building events, to service learning opportunities and parent educational workshops.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be your next Parents Association President.  Parents like you are critical to the continued success of the PA. Through your support, we create a strong and vibrant community that enhances the educational experience of all our children. I encourage you to reach out to your Grade Coordinator, read the weekly Parents Association email to stay informed, and get involved where you can. We welcome all volunteers, from those who can spare a few hours helping from their own home or office, to those who are able to chair events. On behalf of the Parents Association Board, we look forward to working with you, seeing old friends, and making new ones. 

Please reach out to me if you have any questions and join us at one of our upcoming events.
