It recognizes teachers during teacher appreciation week and provides scholarships to graduating seniors. It also looks for volunteers in the community to provide tutoring or to present during career days at the schools. Members also participate on the Campus Advisory Committees of the schools in order to understand better what is happening in the schools and be more aware of opportunities for the neighborhood to be involved.

Our school’s committee meets every 4-6 weeks, and meetings are open to all Windsor Park residents. Please email [schools @ windsorpark.info] if you’d like to attend our next meeting.
