Athenian Parent Association

The Athenian Parent Association invites you to become a part of the Athenian community. We support the School by encouraging family participation in community activities and events that are planned by the APA. We host exchange students in our homes. We encourage volunteers for the library, sports, performing arts programs, the Admission office, the Athenian Robotics Collective, and other programs. And we raise funds through eScrip and spirit wear sales. All parents are automatically members of the APA. The APA coordinates a variety of programs for you, your students, and Athenian's faculty and staff, such as special programs and assemblies, appreciation luncheons, student welcome events, and parent meetings.

To stay informed about the APA activities, read the Athenian Weekly every Friday and come to our monthly APA meetings. Our goal is to have families participate and we look forward to working with you to make this happen!
