Parent Association

We are not simply a school - we are a community of families because of the dedication of our parent volunteers. Porter-Gaud values and encourages parent engagement.  The relationships between parents, faculty, students, and administrators are strengthened by parent involvement in the volunteer opportunities offered by the Porter-Gaud Parent Association (PGPA).

The mission of the PGPA is to: 
1.  Build community among families through special events and volunteer opportunities.
2.  Provide families with information and resources helpful to parenting.
3.  Raise funds that support school programs.
