What is Jarrow Parent Association?

The JPA is a volunteer organization comprised of parents like you who collaborate with faculty and staff to enrich our community through school-wide and parent-only events, philanthropy, parent education, and staff appreciation. There is something for everyone! We hope you will lend a hand to our community this year in any way that fits your schedule. You can join JPA committees on multiple levels, and any support is greatly appreciated as your volunteerism is a vital element of our school.
