How to Get Involved

Join the parent-led Facebook Group. This group is intended to facilitate inter-parent communication. Need a carpool? Aware of a local event that would be interesting to other Kirby families? Need to coordinate or ask for volunteers. Post here.

Submit a piece to the PA Newsletter with this application form. The 2018-2019 parent association newsletter will consist mostly of family-generated content. Yes, that means us! If you have information to share or announcements that you think would benefit the Kirby parent/family community, we’d like to hear from you.

Want to volunteer? Please fill out the Parent Volunteer Sign-Up form to tell us a little more about what you want to do and when you are available. We’ll get in touch with you as soon as we can. Opportunities to help include:
