Aspengrove Parents' Association (APA)Connection. Communication. Contribution. Community Building.
Building upon Aspengrove School’s key values of curiosity, citizenship, courage, creativity and compassion, the APA’s focus includes:
Nurturing community involvement by providing various opportunities to participate/volunteer.
Uniting parents and teachers by fostering positive communication.
Providing a resource for parents. All parents or guardians of children attending Aspengrove are automatically members of the APA.
Building a strong community where parents support and connect with other parents.
To foster communication and provide support for all members of the Aspengrove community* — contributing to a positive, safe atmosphere in which our children may successfully learn, grow, and develop an aptitude for lifelong learning.
*The AGS Community includes all parents, students, teachers and staff
Volunteers are the lifeblood of our great community and help make Aspengrove the warm and inviting school that it is today. Getting involved with the APA is an excellent way to meet fellow parents and interact with faculty and staff, while enriching your child’s experience.
We invite you to get involved in your AGS community. Together, we create amazing events and support many initiatives that benefit our fellow families and children. There are a variety of opportunities to get involved, whether you have a few hours to spare or many.
You can find more information about how you can get involved by visiting the APA Facebook Page or by contacting us HERE. We are always looking for help. Volunteering opportunities will be posted in Aspengrove’s weekly E-Newsletter or the APA Facebook Page.
