Maret Parents Association

From the moment your child enters Maret, you become part of a dynamic community. Every parent is a member of the Maret Parents Association (MPA) and together we help keep Maret strong and vibrant.

The MPA has opportunities for every schedule and interest. We look forward to the energy, new ideas, and talents you bring to the Maret parent community!

The MPA strengthens the connection between home and school and enhances the educational experience for every child at Maret by:

  • Facilitating volunteer-led activities and events that build bonds and enrich our school
  • Supporting teachers and staff
  • Fostering communication among parents, and between parents and the school
  • Sponsoring educational speakers and programs for parents
  • Supporting the Scholarship Auction and other fundraisers
