Our Community


Parent Association

The Parent Association (PA) is a supportive and inclusive organization that welcomes all parents.
In fact, every parent is automatically a member of the Parent Association! Through the volunteer efforts of hundreds of parents, the PA promotes community, coordinates events and supports the School’s fundraising efforts, which include the Crossroads Fund and the K-12 Spring Fundraiser.

Parents are encouraged to choose ways to participate that correspond to their interests and availability and support the needs and goals of the School. The close working relationship enjoyed by the administration and faculty with the PA is a unique strength that unites students, parents and the School in a bond that enhances the experience of all three. In great measure, Crossroads has grown and flourished because of the vision, leadership and commitment of its wonderful and dedicated parent volunteers!

Involvement Opportunities
All parents are encouraged to engage in the life of our School through a variety of opportunities, including:

  • as volunteers, working hands-on to help coordinate events and activities;

  • as participants in educational programs such as parent education events, morning chats, parent Councils, parent days, back-to-school nights and grade level coffees;

  • purely social activities such as coffees, dinners, barbecues, picnics and potlucks.

All levels of participation are needed and appreciated!

    “I get so much value out of just participating in what my kids are doing. There are opportunities where I can add what I know. ... I also get a chance to see what they’re doing with their teachers and their classmates. It’s been incredibly valuable.”
