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.
