About The Parents’ Association

As a parent of a student attending PS/IS 206, you are automatically a member of the Parents’ Association (PA).  The Parents’ Board is the governing body of the Association, comprised of Grade Representatives and the Executive Committee Officers. Grade Representatives communicate with families each month and are expected to attend the monthly meetings. The Executive Committee’s focus is to distribute funds raised by the PA in a timely and equitable manner among the two school divisions, PS and IS, as well as to ensure that the maximum number of students benefit from any expenditure.

The PA is a critical part of the PS/IS 206 Joseph F Lamb School community. The PA Board and its volunteers are committed to enriching our children’s education.

The PA holds monthly meetings to discuss business affairs, important school issues, and its fundraising activities.  Everyone is welcome, and encouraged, to attend.  Please take the time to consider what role you can play in helping to generate and provide supplemental support to the school. Our collective efforts enhance the educational experience. Your support and participation are greatly appreciated!
